History as a Subject and Discipline: Ensuring Content and Skills Breathe the Same Air
Kyle VanderWall, APUSH teacher and co-author of the Teacher's Edition for Fabric of Nation, presents you with methods for incorporating content and skills into your lessons such that students develop an understanding of history as both a subject and discipline. Too often, AP students compartmentalize these concepts and thus leave APUSH with a less nuanced understanding of what they are studying. Kyle offers strategies for weaving skills with content as you teach Reconstruction--a topic we're all facing soon. Each participant will leave the session with a sample lesson and materials to teach the content of Reconstruction through disciplinary skills.
