Announcing the 2015 Elementary Social Studies Institute:
RESCHEDULED TO March 11, 2015, Tulsa

The 2015 Elementary Social Studies Institute (ESSI) is a one-day professional development offering primarily for vertical teams of third-fifth grade social studies teachers; individual teachers are welcome to register. The institute will be especially beneficial for vertical teams of elementary teachers who are preparing students for the Grade 5 Social Studies criterion-referenced test.

Oklahoma classroom teachers and others who have achieved “Teacher Consultant” status through training with OKAGE will present. Other presenters may include State Department of Education representatives with expertise in standards and student assessment.

Educators who teach in schools or school districts with a student enrollment classified as 50% or greater Free and Reduced Lunch (2013-2014 data) may apply for reimbursement of substitute teacher pay.
The ESSI is funded in part by a grant from the Oklahoma State Board of Education and the Oklahoma Geography Education Fund.
