MikeGwaltney4/2/20124:09 PMRT @MsLivFLVS: A1-We should always build in current events--learning must pass the "so what, who cares" factor for students. #sschat
64

75
ShawnMcCusker4/2/20124:10 PM@rggillespie Why not start with relevance and current and make connections. Those connections are natural. #sschat

79
rggillespie4/2/20124:10 PM@ShawnMcCusker Read that we should ditch history as we teach it and instead focus what's relevant/current. I'm not too fond of idea. #sschat
80
Ron_Peck4/2/20124:10 PMQ1: There are so many great topics in the world. I share this as a starting point to understand cultures: http://t.co/8jHAyPoQ #sschat
81
classroomtools4/2/20124:11 PM@rggillespie That is why it is so important to teach skills rather than lists. Skills apply to past events as well as current ones. #sschat
82
ballardam4/2/20124:11 PMQ1 I totally agree teaching backwards. Why? It would hook them! #sschat

87
rggillespie4/2/20124:11 PM@ShawnMcCusker Agree when it's possible, but it's not always possible. #sschat
88
Ron_Peck4/2/20124:11 PM@42thinkdeep Start with any local issue and connect it to the history of the region or to a sociological problem. #sschat
89
ShawnMcCusker4/2/20124:11 PM@MrsBeck25 Ture fact. And cause and effect is important for them to grasp, stuff is caused by stuff which causes other stuff. #sschat

rggillespie4/2/20124:12 PM140 char. limit got me: my point wasn't to ditch current events. We must make what we teach relevant and current. #sschat
97
jk_coffee4/2/20124:12 PM@42ThinkDeep for example when we discuss an econ panic, I tie in the similarities in our current econ situation. #sschat

ShawnMcCusker4/2/20124:12 PM@rggillespie I totally disagree. If relevance is imp then we're teaching the wrong things. Life is relevant. History is life. #sschat
