I just recently had the opportunity to work with Josh Wenzel, a practicing social studies teacher and former Learners Edge critic. While course development is in my wheelhouse, teaching social studies is not. Together, we established a new course 5141: Social Studies Instruction for Maximum Impact.
In this course focused on taking full advantage of the efficiency and impact of direction, teachers will check out the ideas of surface area knowing, deep knowing, and transfer of discovering in the content area of social studies. The course text, Visible Learning for Social Studies by Hattie, Stern, Fisher, and Frey, offers a current research study base and right away appropriate methods.
While course advancement is in my wheelhouse, teaching social research studies is not. Together, we developed a new course 5141: Social Studies Instruction for Maximum Impact.
In this course focused on optimizing the effectiveness and impact of direction, instructors will explore the concepts of surface knowing, deep knowing, and transfer of finding out in the content area of social research studies. The course text, Visible Learning for Social Studies by Hattie, Stern, Fisher, and Frey, offers an existing research base and immediately suitable techniques. The coursework encourages advancement of activities and lessons instructors can utilize the next day and offers many chances for reflection. Plus, the course is filled with resources for educational planning. As an example, Application: Innovate asks individuals to establish a lesson to ensure deep learning of a principle and includes 12 resources to assist with innovative planning. Check them out!
