August 20: Reading in BHP
We know that so much of teaching history involves helping students analyze and decode a variety of different texts. What we struggle with as history teachers is instructing students on how to do just that. In the this session, we’ll:
- dedicate our time to all things reading and reading instruction
- find out about the reading scaffolds created specifically for the BHP course
- learn how other teachers differentiate reading for students in their classrooms
You’ll leave this session (almost) feeling like an English teacher!
- Download and review these activities and resources in advance of the PLC.
- Take a look at Teaching Big History, BHP’s free, online professional development course for teachers. Whether you’re new or veteran, you’ll get a lot more out of the PLC if you (re)familiarize yourself with the structure, skills, and routines of the BHP course. The section on Reading is especially helpful for this PLC.
- Sign up for the online BHP Teacher Community on Yammer. Why? So you can continue to connect with and get moral support from your fellow BHP Teachers everywhere. Go on, now. Don’t be shy.
