Using Online Auctions to Invigorate the Social Studies Curriculum
Waring, Scott M.
Social Studies, v100 n2 p93-96 Mar-Apr 2009
As social studies continues to be increasingly marginalized, educators find themselves looking for new ways to creatively and effectively bolster social studies content knowledge with less financial support. The author focuses on online auctions--a resource social studies teachers often neglect--and how they can enhance instruction. Many educators have used online auctions for purchasing items for their own consumption, but few have discovered the ways in which they can enhance classroom teaching. The author discusses some of the ways in which these sites may be used.
