Abstract: Participants learn to create, deliver, and vary classroom practices teaching social studies with a multiplicity of disciplines including history, geography, math, science, and technology. Participants and their students will be rewarded with challenging and motivating lessons that will prepare students for life-skills and assessment challenges. Ideas and examples in lesson planning for the interactive social studies classroom are provided. Hands-on activities such as maps, games, hard-copies, and computer-based interactions create a rewarding balance for instruction. Participants will discover free resources— materials and websites—that can be used for constructing lessons and activities. Work with vocabulary, timelines, map distance predictions, science tables, civil rights, presidents, word problems, enduring issues, and more. Participants will complete best practices, play games, and share feedback throughout the workshop.
