65
42ThinkDeep1/7/20134:06 PMRT @stlpresley: Amy from S. Louis. Been a while & looking forward to tonight's #sschat & checking out #wrldchat
66
irishteach1/7/20134:06 PMA1: Allow them to search for their own readings of interest within the era we are studying. Then we share/analyze/question readings #sschat
67
historyteach461/7/20134:06 PMRT @jk_coffee: Q1: I get them to examine how that doc fits in the context of that time. #sschat
68
ShawnMcCusker1/7/20134:06 PM@B_KOL ME TOO! #sschat
69
khewett1021/7/20134:06 PM@SHEG_Stanford A1: I use your materials. I also use a lot of Docs Teach. I think it is key to model how historians read #sschat
70
classroomtools1/7/20134:06 PM@SHEG_Stanford A1 I tried to get mine to read like citizens. None became historians. All were & continued to be citizens. #sschat
71
B_KOL1/7/20134:06 PM@ShawnMcCusker Hi Shawn! Glad you're back. #sschat
72
TeachPleau1/7/20134:06 PM@SHEG_Stanford Q1 #sschat students read like historians as they consider the time period, perspective of the author, biases of the author
73
SHEG_Stanford1/7/20134:06 PMA crucial move for all grade levels: RT @historyteach46: I teach 6th grade, so I model reading strategies a lot to show them how. #sschat
74
42ThinkDeep1/7/20134:06 PMA1: Try to instill that reading documents is not a race to the end but a scenic route to understanding. #sschat
75
bcurrie51/7/20134:06 PM#sschat Students read when they are interested in topic. Important to expose them to multiple perspectives and be able to relate to reading.
76
Gryczewski1/7/20134:06 PMI encourage my ss to read primary sources on a subject from different perspectives so we can find the similarities. Go from there #sschat
77
jk_coffee1/7/20134:06 PMQ1: I get them to examine how that doc fits in the context of that time. #sschat
78
stlpresley1/7/20134:06 PMAmy from S. Louis. Been a while & looking forward to tonight's #sschat & checking out #wrldchat
79
mraabbe1/7/20134:06 PMA1: Work with "real history" in primary sources #sschat
80
dlaufenberg1/7/20134:06 PMA1: Provide them with an opp. to investigate - choose readings based on research, rather than just give them all the same reading #sschat
81
ShawnMcCusker1/7/20134:06 PM@SHEG_Stanford A1 I try to get them to start identifying bias and perspective. Then comparing competing versions. #sschat
82
clarky0991/7/20134:07 PMA1 Give students opposing perspectives in their sources,but often start with "the story" that can be challenged #sschat
83
jafilosa1/7/20134:07 PMA1: Good question - always approach a reading asking the question "What is the bias?" Because there ALWAYS is bias. #sschat
84
khewett1021/7/20134:07 PM“@42ThinkDeep: A1: Try to instill that reading documents is not a race to the end but a scenic route to understanding. #sschat” love this!
85
DataDiva1/7/20134:07 PM@classroomtools that's an interesting provocation. Is "like a historian" the wrong focus? Should it be a "like a citizen"? #sschat
86
42ThinkDeep1/7/20134:07 PMRT @bgillett: A1: Provide them video opportunities to work with authentic material by using primary sources #Sschat
87

90
broomerjg1/7/20134:07 PMQ.1 Have them try to explain why an event is significant; what makes it important and why it is important to them #sschat
91
Folmerica1/7/20134:07 PMA1: We read primary sources with a critical eye, looking a sourcing, contextualization, and corroboration. #sschat
92
Tcos971/7/20134:07 PM#sschat A1 I model asking questions like a reporter
93
historyfriend1/7/20134:08 PM#sschat The best work we do is when students use mix of primary & secondary sources to tackle research question.
94
gduralek1/7/20134:08 PMA1: contextualizing in previous time periods is always the hardest part for students. #sschat
95
ballardam1/7/20134:08 PM#sschat A1: Start with a familiar topic (like Columbus) & model how to start reading like a historian through excerpts of his journal
96
Cousins2121/7/20134:08 PM#sschat I teach 9th graders and we read for main idea and point of view. We emphasize the source and the context
97
stlpresley1/7/20134:08 PM@khewett102 @42ThinkDeep Agree #sschat
98
historyteach461/7/20134:08 PMRT @broomerjg: Q.1 Have them try to explain why an event is significant; what makes it important and why it is important to them #sschat
99
WSUSocStudies1/7/20134:08 PMA1 Reading like a historian also means deciphering point of view & argument to determine how sources were used to make sense of past #sschat
100
kyteacher1/7/20134:08 PMA1: Model reading loads of primary sources from a variety of perspectives. Look for signs bias & corroborating evidence as we go. #sschat
