"A Shared History of Many Stories" within the elementary classroom

I enjoyed learning that our youngest of learners are working with driving questions (how did my community develop over time and how does it continue to change), appropriate supporting questions, and historical thinking skills, in this case, change/continuity over time.  We continue to hone these skills in the high school history classroom, and we also look to scale our inquiries to include local communities.  We attempt to learn the often abstract global experiences with connections to local frameworks.  Thank you for sharing this session!

  • This was a great way to introduce prospective to students.  I loved how you focused on who and not events and their impacts on people and will bring that into my classroom.
