Olbrys, Stefanie – Social Education, 2019
When the author encountered the C3 Framework, she saw an opportunity to develop a different approach that she hoped would encourage all her students to reach their highest potential.

Berson, Ilene R.; Berson, Michael J. – Social Education, 2019
Digital technologies have expanded access to a wealth of resources stored in archives. But authenticating, describing, and indexing these resources requires painstaking work.

Neumann, Dave – Social Education, 2019
Engaging emotion is essential to effective history instruction. This may strike some as a banal observation, as we have long known that student enthusiasm and engagement are key elements of learning.

Krutka, Daniel G.; Heath, Marie K. – Social Education, 2019
When John Lewis sought to change segregation laws in 1960 Nashville, Tennessee, he did so through nonviolent sit-ins.

Maxwell, Mike – Social Education, 2019
After a quarter-century with historical thinking skills at the forefront of the history-teaching agenda, the news from history education is not good.
