Conflicts in Social Studies Teaching
This course will guide educators in the appropriate and effective use of academic controversy, common perception, and “myth” in the social studies classroom. Participants will be guided in the development of higher order thinking and discovery-based units of instruction while learning how to both use and challenge commonly held perceptions in history, geography, and sociology.
[Formerly titled Social Studies Mythbusting.]
Controversy is a great source of motivation for students in Social Studies classes. This course will guide participants through an examination of beliefs held by the general public (and even many Social Studies educators) regarding history, geography, sociology, and even genealogy. Will these myths be “busted” or “confirmed?” Join us to find out, and spread an appreciation of controversy to your classrooms.
