I have taught World History, Social
Studies and United States History. My teaching style involves critical
thinking, primary sources and research. I hold a 09 Standard Teaching
Certificate from the State of
Ancient World Explorer – Students examine ancient civilizations, making connections between them and to the world today.
PBL: History’s Lessons – This is an extensive PBL where are challenged to ponder the Driving Question: “Do the lessons passed down to us by history, lessons whose origins may be hundreds, even thousands of years in the past, still have value today?”
UPS Webquests - This is a set of modules using primary sources. These UPS exercises are designed to help students become critical thinkers by thinking as a historian and learning to write competently by using primary sources. They will examine real evidence about important questions in history. They will evaluate this evidence against what they already know in order to reach a conclusion. The process of evaluation, analysis, and synthesis reflects what historians do. Some of the primary sources included are graphics, maps, charts, political cartoons, poems, songs as well as documents. Learning to look at something critically and interpret its meaning and impact are vital skills for the life-long learner.
Human Rights – This is a series of investigations using primary sources mostly from the digitalized collection at the Library of Congress. Students will use primary sources to develop an understanding of race relations and human rights in US History. They will also examine their responsibilities as Catholic citizens in light of Catholic Social Teaching and scripture.
