Teacher Professional Development: I need these books to help myself and my professional learning community further develop in the uses of best practices. <profdevpilot>
Teaching a diverse group of students can be difficult. Students in my classroom make up many different nationalities and represent a broad range of abilities. We are striving to continue making high growth with very few resources and a brand new curriculum.
My first couple of years in the classroom I taught in a high poverty school.
I was the sole 7th and 8th grade Social Studies teacher and struggled to not only master the curriculum but master my own personal pedagogy as a beginning teacher. This year I have transferred to and now work at a very diverse school and work within a PLC. I have experience the best of both worlds and am looking to continue growing as an educator
I am requesting materials that will specifically work with reading primary source documents, and doing critical/ deep reading in Social Studies. These will be not only of benefit to myself, but to my entire school, as I am requesting a copies to be included in our PLC resource collection for the other teachers of my grade level.
In order for History to matter for students it must come alive.
Students must be given access to enriching activities. These activities will in return help to develop critical thinkers and productive members of society.
