Synonym:76257 (for web registration)
Meeting Schedule:Tue 6/28 - 7/1 (1:00PM-5:29PM)
Competency Area: Curriculum & Instruction (Social Studies)
Restricted to Education students through April 25; open to other Master’s students on April 26.
Doing local history in and out of the classroom connects students with their communities in a meaningful fashion, bringing to life the abstract concepts and ideas traditionally covered in the history textbook. This course explores models for doing local history projects as part of a standards-based curriculum and gives students the tools to be enablers in their own classrooms. Students will combine hands-on activities involving oral interviews, writing and art with curriculum mapping and the nuts and bolts of classroom management. This course will involve a few field trips to Guilford, Vermont.
