I know that Peace Corps would love to talk through their World Wise Schools program for teachers. With more globalized education happening through 1:1 schools, I think it would be beneficial!
Integrating museums and other cultural institutions into lesson plans. I recently left the classroom and joined the Newseum education team and we have so many great resources - and they're free! We would love to share how to use them in classroom! And, it would be great to get other organizations involved in the discussion as well.
Thematic Based Social Studies Instruction, please :)
Creating lessons that use primary sources AND revolve around a central question.
Standards based assessments and grading
Teaching environmental issues; developing curriculum about the environment for either global studies or u.s. history courses...
Someone mentioned this on Twitter a while back but I don't remember who, I thought it was a great idea. Every month a new education tool/website is picked and people experiment with it for the month and then share how they used it. It'd be interesting to see how others are using the resources out there, perhaps in ways we never thought possible.
@mina - I have run a presidential campaign and it is very effective. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss it more
Like Mina, I would love to chat about ways to implement/teach about a current presidential campaign.
Has anyone ever ran a presidential campain in their classroom? I was just brainstorming and thought it would be perfect. Any suggestions?
I would love to have a chat and discuss how other teachers are using infograhics in the classroom and connecting them with the new Common Core standards
Thanks for all of your great ideas. We will be incorporating these into the chat this summer. Look for an additional chat each week for #sschat. :-)
Meeting the common core with interesting activities that will spark students' interest, ideas, participation, etc...(not too much to ask for now, is it???)
Co-teaching, examples of lessons that may use small groups or really take advantage of having two teachers in there. I am also looking for ideas to improve my students understanding of economic vocabulary
How do you want to grow professionally as an educator? What is your vision? What resources/support can help you on your journey?
How do you incorporate primary sources into you classroom?
