For many of us, this is our last week before the holiday break. Congratulations! You've made it through the first semester! What are your plans for the break? What are your plans for your students over break?? I recall being assigned homework by my teachers every single break. That's ironic right there. Being assigned "work" during "break." I had no break.
Perhaps we should reconsider assigning homework over breaks for students? After all, don't we need a break? Shouldn't they also get a break?
After several months of working on this, I can finally share with you my presentation deck for teaching history thematically! The detailed mini e-book version will come soon! Continue reading this post to get more information and access to the deck.
After a fall hiatus, I'm back and I have some updates for you! I finally finished my "Creating Your Own Thematic History Curriculum" deck - presentation version, titled as "Not Your Typical History Class: A Thematic Approach to Teaching History." The in-depth deck will arrive in 2020. This will be a busy winter break. I will be sharing the presentation version with you in the coming week! Stay tuned!
Also, I'll be presenting on thematic teaching for the first time this weekend at CTA (California Teachers Association) New Educator Weekend South in San Diego. My session will also be recorded. I'll provide the link once I'm hear it's live. Looking forward to the presenting what I've learned to others and get feedback!
