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!
I am looking to write more often, so I'll be taking baby steps and starting with these short reflection pieces, "Thoughts for Chang."
Since I started teaching, I've been working really hard on helping my students develop perspective and opinions of their own.
