Divorce Your Textbook

Monday 3:00 Room: Commonwealth Museum Conference Room

Presenter: RICH SEEFELDT, NYSTROM Education

Nystrom Education joined Social Studies School Service to offer a solution for outdated textbooks and to help minimize preparation time.  I will introduce Active Classroom our new platform that delivers inquiry-based social studies content for grades 5-12, empowering teachers to deliver student-centered lessons with ease.

This subscription-based, digital alternative to the textbook, provides differentiated instruction through our broad range of quality resources written by awarded historians with varied perspectives. 

I will demonstrate how to choose lessons by subject, reading level, activity type, and CCSS, engaging audience in a lesson on Progressivism – U.S. History, providing handouts for participation.

Attendees will also receive a no-cost trial account to Active Classroom with instructions.
