My name is Heather Ramsey and I am a Social Studies teacher at Emily Griffith High School in Denver, CO.
We are an alternative school that focuses on retrieving students aged 17 to 21 who left high school before earning a diploma.
A big focus at our school is student engagement, and my goal is to use technology as a resource to help me engage my students. “Scooping” and sharing content is a way in which I can promote literacy with Social Studies students. I include questions in my scoops so that students can respond to the content and practice writing skills for credit toward their course.
I hope you enjoy the content as much as I enjoy finding it. A big thank you to other curators for the excellent content they provide!
