How to Integrate Document-Based History with the Common Core » Copy / Paste by Peter Pappas

How to Integrate Document-Based History with the Common Core » Copy / Paste by Peter Pappas | Implementing the National Common Core Standards | Scoop.it

CCSS offers an incentive for teachers to use historic documents to build literacy skills in a content area while empowering students to be the historian in the classroom. Document-based (DBQ) instruction in this context requires four key elements to be successful.

Deb Gardner's curator insight, February 13, 2013 4:53 AM

Peter Pappas has been working with iBook to create fabulous media rich e-books for his students and he's just finished his second one. Following is his methodology for creating media-rich, informative, and engaging material for document-based instruction in the common core classroom:


  1. Choose the right documents
  2. Know how to look at them
  3. Let students discover their own patterns, then asking students to describe, compare and defend what they found
  4. Base the task on enduring questions (and ones that are meaningful to students)

Reflective Teaching for Librarians

Reflective Teaching for Librarians | Implementing the National Common Core Standards | Scoop.it

"Most librarians are educators in one sense or another, even when the role is not explicit. The best teachers learn from others and learn by doing. This is a good rule for improving at virtually anything: Seeking inspiration and accepting criticism makes your work richer and more well rounded."

 

"This article, adapted from Char Booth's book on Reflective Teaching, Effective Learning (2011), presents her ideas based on her own method expanded through mentorship, coteaching, online forums, and other collaboration channels: http://americanlibrariesmagazine.org/features/03142012/reflective-teaching-librarians"
