By class time on Wednesday read Effectively Using Social Studies Textbooks In Historical Inquiry by Scott Roberts. It is just over 6 pages long and will give you help in creating clear and focused lesson plans that are in sync with curricular standards. In response to reading, post a reply (by class time on Wednesday) to these two prompts:
- In a paragraph or two; what are the strengths of using textbooks to generate lesson plans?
- Do the first two steps that Roberts recommends (on page 121) with any standard of your choosing (using the standards I’ve provided below). SO, just write out a response in two parts:
a) Select a (state or national) standard you find interesting and
b) Develop an interesting question around that standard.
***For help with this, just note/imitate what Roberts does at the top of page 121.
