Presenting at the Wisconsin Council for the Social Studies

Sorry for the radio silence. Since I last wrote, I have moved to Wisconsin and now teach at Starbuck Middle School in Racine. Here I teach geography and world cultures. My job is exceptionally important as I am the first social teacher that most of these students have ever had. What hasn’t changed are my efforts to promote student engagement. Whether its Breakout Boxes or social studies museums, it is all about making students lead their own learning by giving them a “voice and choice”.

This weekend I’ll presenting an updated presentation on social science museums.  The skills: project-based learning, ‘voice and choice’, and research and analysis remain the same. If you happen to be in Madison try to stop by or at least visit my website next week for a look at my presentation.
