Mantle of the Expert: Integrating Dramatic Inquiry and Visual Arts in Social Studies
Johnson, Edric C.; Liu, Katrina; Goble, Kristin
Social Studies, v106 n5 p204-208 2015
This article introduces the social studies field to Dorothy Heatchote's Mantle of Expert (MOE). MOE is a dramatic inquiry approach used in several subject areas and can work at all levels in the social studies curriculum. The authors go into the development of using this approach in an elementary and middle teacher education program. After sharing their modeling approach with preservice teachers in an elementary social studies methods course, the authors address what it means for preservice teachers to construct their own MOE social studies lesson plans and how teachers must think of their role as a performing art.
