This is a great book that will help any vocabulary in any class and really for all levels. Practical strategies here!
Wineburg is the guru when it comes to trying to show students how to think more like a historian and less like a textbook. While some of this is philosophical, much of it is practical in it’s application to the history classroom.
This is a great way to ditch the textbook! Examples of how flawed and outright wrong some texts are. A good way to start re-thinking how you approach teaching history!
David Kobrin’s book is a great way to engage your students in a history class with primary sources. He uses the best resource out there: the students! Gives great examples too!
This book by Michael Schmoker is a great reminder that no matter what we do, we should be concentrating on reading, writing, and talking with our students. This fits nicely into any classroom setting.
Lee Sheldon’s book is a great start if you are looking into making your classroom more like
an actual game. He has great examples of actual teachers who have done just this. A great read with a lot of useful information!
So, I was in a great conversation about sharing books and ideas on an on line book club for teachers to improve their teaching. Here it is! If you want to become an admin for this site to post books and ideas, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add you to the list! Share on!
