Snapshots and Showcase Events: Micro and Macro Methods to Make Student Research Come Alive.
Helmus, Timothy M.
Michigan Social Studies Journal, v1 n2 p57-63 Feb 1987
Describes two methods of invigorating student research in social studies. Showcase events are culminating activities or simulations which demonstrate student learning in an active, imaginative, and involving way. Snapshots are dramatic interpretations of specific moments in time. Examples of both methods are provided along with suggestions for incorporating them into tenth and eleventh grade history/humanities courses. (JDH)
