Transforming the Classroom via Historical Documents
Imagine taking a trip through time with your students (Gettysburg, 1863 :Lincoln; Farewell address, 1796: Washington; Topeka, Kansas, 1954 (Brown v. Board of Education). These time periods in history enable the classroom to spring alive with action. Interactive learning opportunities through history will foster critical thinking skills in almost any discipline: English, Social Studies, Math, Science, Business. Through DBQ analysis, picture book studies, primary and secondary source writing, historical documents inculcate a wealth of learning opportunities for students. They will spark their voices and transform them into active participants in society, thus increasing their literary awareness.
A must for all K-12 educators!!!!
