What instructional practices do you/can you use with history/social studies content that align to the recommendations?

One of my priorities for this year will be to increase text-dependent discussion to address the Speaking and Listening Standards in addition to the Reading Standards. This should be easy with my history/social studies content as there are so many interesting documents, issues, and images to discuss. But I will want to use sentence frames and good questions to help the students know how to begin, stay on topic, and use academic and discipline-specific vocabulary.
