Contextualization and the Power of Time and Place

Recorded March 5, 2024

How do we help students understand the time and place in which events, individuals, and sources exist? During this session, educators will look at the role of contextualization in world-history instruction, and practice strategies that empower students to view their units of study with the appropriate context and level of criticism.

About North Carolina Department of Public Instruction & OER Project Professional Development Series

North Carolina schools leadership and OER Project believe that teachers are the key to providing students with the skills and knowledge necessary to lead our country into the future. In that spirit, we are collaborating to provide a series of workshops for teachers looking to add a few new tools to their toolbox. Developing students’ skills in any social studies classroom is imperative for understanding the content. These sessions will dive deep into a particular skill and leave you with ideas and tools that can be implemented immediately in your classroom. OER Project team members will work with North Carolina schools to design each session with your needs in mind. We are excited to begin this partnership and look forward to learning together throughout the school year.
