You will be asked to do a resource review for each of the major content disciplines within the social studies (U.S. history, world history, economics, geography, and civics).
For each resource review, you will respond on the class blog with:
- What resource(s) did you find particularly engaging? Why?
- What resource(s) would you use with students? How?
- Are there any gaps in the resources available for this discipline? In other words, are the resources available incomplete or do you see a need for any new resources to be developed?
- Please share any additional discipline-specific resources you have found or have used not listed on this site.
In addition to answering the above questions, you should also respond to other students’ posts. You could either incorporate responses to other students’ posts in your own resource review or post separate responses, questions, etc. to other students’ posts. Initial posts must be made by the Tuesday night prior to the class meeting. You are responsible for checking the blog and responding to any additional questions or comments prior to the class meeting on Thursday.
