Asking the Big Questions That Make History “Stick”

Tuesday 1:30 – 4:00 – Commonwealth Museum Conference Room

Presenter: Emily Creveling, Freehold Township School District

Participants will immerse themselves into the role of students as they explore the tragedy of the My Lai Massacre. This experiential learning session will incorporate best practices in the teaching of social studies and literacy, including the use of essential questions to guide student learning, careful scaffolding of content and skills, use of primary sources, and effective inclusion of reading, writing, and speaking. Participants will deconstruct the lesson afterwards and consider the implications for their own classroom teaching.
