American history takes on new and personal meaning for students when they assume the roles of teens in our country’s most pivotal times, from the American Revolution to the turbulent early 1900’s, as we evolved further as a nation of immigrants.
Many school children learn about pivotal historical happenings not from their textbooks but from feature films. Used judiciously, historical fiction can be a rich resource in the classroom, engaging students’ interest and providing educators a ready audience for discussing fact, fiction, and interpretation.
Many students think that “veteran” is synonymous with “old.” They may also think that “Medal of Honor” is only a video game. History doesn’t happen in books. Bring it to life this year for your students as we approach the 96th anniversary of Armistice Day, the celebration of the close of “The War to End All Wars.”
We all launch into a new school year with enthusiasm and determination: “I’ll get good grades, have perfect attendance”…then reality sets in: This is HARD! How can we engage students in active learning and help them to maintain that September momentum throughout the entire school year?
