Keeping it real with Primary Sources! | Digital Learning Environments

Keeping it real with Primary Sources! | Digital Learning Environments | Ed-Tech Trends | Scoop.it

  The ELA Common Core State Standards (CCSS)  suggest the use of more primary source materials in science and social studies classes.  I agree that this will bring some interesting experiences to class and expose kids to some historically important documents.  These documents will also challenge them to read “closely” and will offer  great ways to generate, and reflect on, text dependent questions.  But where are these resources available?  They were not as easy to find as I thought, but here is a set of starting points that’ll point you in the right direction!

How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes: Lessons in Mindfulness and Creativity from the Great Detective

How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes: Lessons in Mindfulness and Creativity from the Great Detective | Ed-Tech Trends | Scoop.it

“The habit of mind which leads to a search for relationships between facts,” wrote James Webb Young in his famous 1939 5-step technique for creative problem-solving, “becomes of the highest importance in the production of ideas.”But just how does one acquire those vital cognitive customs? That’s precisely what science writer Maria Konnikova explores inMastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes (UK; public library) — an effort to reverse-engineer Holmes’s methodology into actionable insights that help develop “habits of thought that will allow you to engage mindfully with yourself and your world as a matter of course.”

Looks like another book to add to my ever-growing reading list. I often use the "crime map" metaphor when trying to linke patterns, people, and trends for significance. Also fits with our philosophy of "linking and leveraging".
