Two Day Workshop
Many social studies and language arts teachers are familiar with close reading strategies to develop historical thinking based on the printed word. Traditional texts though can serve as a barrier for students who struggle with reading, particularly those who have language-based learning disabilities or are non-native English speakers. In this workshop, participants will learn how to develop historical thinking skills through the analysis of buildings and their histories. We will draw upon literacy theory and practice to show how the process of historical building analysis supports students’ development of higher order thinking skills and meets CCSS standards.
