Sevier, Brian; Sampish, Allison; Barnes, Maria; Webb, Katie
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v23 n1 p11-15 Sep-Oct 2010
Creating a story quilt is a powerful and alternative way for students to demonstrate understanding of social studies content. This article describes the use of story quilts in elementary school classrooms at three different grade levels (1st, 3rd, and 5th). In each unit of study, the teacher devoted, on average, three to four weeks to guiding students as they created a story quilt related to a social studies topic. (Contains 8 notes.)
