Weaving Children’s Literature into Social Studies K–5

Logistics Questions


  • How much time will we have? 
  • Could any surprises affect the amount of actual presentation time? 
  • How long will we have for lunch and for breaks? 

Set Up:

  • What physical set-ups are required? 
  • Can I get into the room 45 minutes before the event? 
  • What do I need? (e.g. name tags, room arrangements, snack arrangements, audiovisual equipment, and instructional materials)


  • What travel and transportation details should we check?
  • How do I get to the site and how long will it take me to get there? 

Facilitators will have to work closely with the school district contact person to develop a workshop plan to suit the needs of the participants. There are more activities than time available, most likely, so facilitators should pick and choose to meet the particular needs of each group. Ideally this workshop should be offered as a full-day learning opportunity.
