We started a twitter chat every Thursday night between 9:00 and 10:00 pm (EST), using #ontsshg hashtag. The goal is to share ideas, lessons, questions and to talk about the New Revised Social Studies/History and Geography (2013). To date we've discussed the integration of Discipline-Based Thinking concepts and the adoption of an Inquiry Model of instructional practice. Hope you can join us!
