Studies Strategies for Active Learning, by Andi Stix, Ed.D.
- Grades 3 and Up
Available for TAH Participants in the Castleton Library.
This integrated approach to active learning encourages
educators to immerse students in simulations, debates, discussions, and
other activities that encourage personal connections while relating
historical events to current issues. The context is flexible
enough to use with any social studies topic. The author presents
numerous strategies in each of the following categories. It also comes
with a CD so you can print off materials.
- Deductive reasoning
- Art integration
- Language arts integration
- Primary documents
A note from Project Director,
Mary and I met with the publisher and found the materials
very worthwhile. Three copies will be available in the
library; you can check them out for two weeks to review the
program. I will keep a backup copy in my office for
reference. I like the materials, so you may want to think
about getting this for your school. The cost is $79.99
