Lesson Topic:


John is interested in working on creating a course on Local History. Rather than creating a single lesson, we worked on designing the course that is steeped in local history as well as being standards based. We worked on creating a central theme and are designing problem-based learning activities that support this theme.

His plan is to jigsaw parts of the material culture and track changes over time with the students explaining why changes occur. These would include (but not be limited to) tombstones, church design, house design, transportation, industry and power, entertainment and food. The new course would be dependent on students relating these changes over time to actual photos and artifacts.
