Hidden In Plain Sight
Social Studies educators looking for great information and tools to get your students excited about history shouldn't miss this informative webinar!
What if you could get students excited by connecting the era of Andrew Jackson, for example, to the history of their own community? Helping students see the bigger picture through local history is a technique that Peter Vermilyea - Social Studies educator at Housatonic Valley Regional High School and Western Connecticut State University - has effectively used for years to engage students with what they’re learning and get them excited to learn more about where they live.
Be sure to read Peter's blog article about ProjeCT29 and getting students excited about history's bigger picture.
