About the Presentation:
Timelines: History in Perspective- An Auditory, Visual, and Kinesthetic Learning Unit
Participants will experience a project-oriented exploration of the fifty most important events in American History through multiple learning styles. In this student-centered approach teachers will guide the class in constructing manipulatives that are both visual and kinesthetic that will help students understand the order of events, their connection, and importance. Teachers will construct sample timelines and notebooks, explore ways to put the march of history into perspectives that students can grasp, experience study techniques, and share evaluation methods that uphold academic rigor while encouraging student involvement in their own learning.
8:30-11:30 During this session, participants will be involved in a demonstration and creation of a cross-disciplinary unit, and if time allows, see other units that the presenter has developed.
