Social Studies Strategies: Tableaus
Want to bring history to life for your students? Try incorporating a dramatic technique call tableaus. In this simple, low-prep strategy, students freeze-frame a historic moment in time. Student creation of tableaus might involve the re-creation of a famous work of art or historic photograph, or students might develop an imaginative interpretation of a historical event. Take a look at these links or contact Robin Elmore if you want to learn more about using tableaus in your classroom.
