Connecting with the Past: History Workshop in Middle and High Schools
Using the Holocaust as a springboard for exploration, Connecting with the Past takes readers into a classroom history workshop, where students examine actual historical artifacts, investigate literature, and express what they've learned through writing. The book provides both the theoretical framework and the step-by-step details of how to put history workshops into practice. Chapters describe precisely how the author made each decision, from the planning stage through to final student presentations. Extensive samples of student discussions and writing are presented and analyzed. Readers will identify with the process described and are invited to transform their own history teaching.
