Schedule a 4QM workshop at your school, or come see us present at an upcoming conference. We’ll explain how to use 4QM thinking to plan units that are clear and coherent, and that teach students to really think about the history they’re learning. We’ll give you some materials and ideas that you can use right away — but more importantly, we’ll get you started using the 4QM framework to unlock your creativity in a way that enables you to both cover your content and engage students in meaningful historical inquiry. We specialize in custom workshops designed to fit the needs of particular schools and districts, and have particular expertise in curriculum implementation and revision. Below is a list of upcoming workshops:
