SED SO 567
History Lab will be held at the Old North Church in the North End of Boston. There, we will explore how to develop lessons using historic documents, objects, and places. Ideal for those who want to incorporate authentic historical materials and methods into their classrooms. Each class will explore an essential historical question, skill, and/or concept, such as: * History v. the Past: How can the same object can be interpreted differently in the same time period by different people; different time periods for different purposes? * How do you determine "meaning" when the idea transcends the object? * What does the arrangement of physical space reveal about the individuals who used that space? Based on each question, students will use primary and secondary historic sources to 'solve' that historical question. Once the question is "solved," the remainder of the class will be devoted to exploring multiple ways and instances in which to teach that question, skill, and/or concept. Students will then practice teaching these skills and concepts to each other or other volunteers drawn from the historic site. This is a great way to begin to explore or expand your history teaching skills in a really interesting, fun environment, while learning about one of the great historic sites in Boston. 2cr, 2nd sem.
