Glogowski explains how he realised that he was missing being involved in the process of brainstorming as students asked for comments about their essays from their peers, not him. Teachers are involved at the beginning and end, but not the middle. From the powerpoint experience, I would say Iended up being involved in many of the stages, looking over what they were doing both at an IT level and a language level rather that just called upon to answer questions.
There are lots of good resources about social studies in this website. There names of the association that are related with social studies. Also they are all reliable resources. The lessons are also focusing on assessment. In another page there are offering seminars to students to learn how to teach social studies. There was one that took my attention called “Creating Student-Centered Social Studies Classroom Using Socratic Seminar.” It cost $125.
When planning a programme it is important to consider how staff and students experience the delivery of that programme and its assessment. Core to this process are the dates when assessments are set and subsequently handed in – students do not want to have a bunching of coursework and staff need to manage their workload! The Programme Mapper does both. It will graphically display all the hand-in dates for each course within a programme and display, in real time, the effect of any changes you make.
