A5 Here is an older post I did on a strategy (the 4-sentence paper) that can be used in any discipline (history, English for example) that requires argumentative thinking and writing. Works great.

For my students, the biggest thing that prevents them from involving themselves in civic life is feeling disillusioned. They often say things "It won't matter anyway" and "Yea, but nothing ever changes." We study all the times people have made changes, and that helps some

A3 - would be great to have charts or lists of super close elections to demonstrate to students that IT DOES MATTER. Anyone have this?

Anyone confused by or attempting to discredit Kamala Harris’ identity needs a history lesson... so I suggest starting with Chapter 19 -“From Columbus to Castro”, to learn more about immigration and indentured servitude (slavery pt2) in the Caribbean.

Digitized my Legit or Legend: Pocahontas activity for distance learning. I love to use this early in the year to discuss historical perspectives, bias and sourcing.

SS instruction should be done every day. Doesn’t ELA need a topic to teach kids how to read with? Doesn’t science need a civic issue to research about? Doesn’t math need some demographic data to do math with? There you go...fixed it!

A1. I think Ss come into Social Studies with a misconception that Social Studies/History is passive. That it is just about memorizing. We need to show Ss Social Studies is ACTIVE!

I think we should reframe it as discourse. Debate presumes a winner or loser. Discourse focuses on exchanging ideas and views. Besides verifying information, we need to teach students how to disagree without dismissing.

My Mom is an incredible woman - lost a child, lost a husband, lost a brother, lost her sisters, lost her hearing when our house was bombed...but she has never lost her smile.

Lots of good SCOTUS cases about students’ rights: Tinker, Bethel, Hazelwood, Morse, TLO, Vernonia, etc.

We don't wish summer to end...but we can't help peering ahead to the Fall Session, which is too awesome to be contained by a single tweet! The first two months have a heavy focus on civics & citizenship, with an eye toward equity (esp. from & )
