This is the Wiki for Social Studies Methods- Fall 2011
Because we will have limited time to meet "face-to face" during Fall term, I will use the Wiki as a way to upload readings and assignments.
Note that links to the Wiki pages are to the left.
Assignments: Check here regularly.
Idaho Content Standards: These are pdf files of the secondary (6-12) content standards in History and in the other Social Studies (Geography, Economics, Government) plus Concepts/Vocabulary for each area
Links to Teacher Resources: Because we will emphasize digital resources, this page contains links to resources useful to Social Studies teachers. I will update this page as I find interesting links. You can also add links.
Stripling Model of Inquiry: A central understanding of this class is that Social Studies education should be inquiry based. We will discuss this in class, but take a look at the Stripling Model to see the inquiry process.
Syllabus: A pdf copy of the syllabus
Teaching History in the Digital Classroom: I will upload pdf chapters from the text to this page. We will not be reading the complete text, but if you wish to buy a copy, you may. You can buy a paperback copy here:
for $32.00 or you can buy a digital version from Google books here:
