Now Online: Making History Mine

March 30th, 2009

Making History MineDo you feel as though you’re constantly skimming the surface as you try to meet the demands of your history curriculum and state standards? Do your students forge connections to history—can they see how past events and decisions are relevant to the world we live in today?

A veteran teacher of middle and high school history and English, Sarah Cooper has struggled with these questions and has developed broad goals and a repertoire of projects and lessons that you can use in any secondary grade level or unit. Her new book, Making History Mine, will help you tap into your students’ curiosity about the world without dulling their senses with content overload.

Focusing on key goals such as analyzing point of view, understanding the role of language in history, and synthesizing ideas through writing, Sarah presents instructional ideas with rich detail so you can see how they play out in the classroom. You’ll come away with a wealth of new strategies for every aspect of teaching middle school history, and a model for challenging your students to think critically and make history relevant to their lives.
