Reading History Workshop – Class 3 – Working with mulitple document

In a previous entry, I described the work we’re doing in the Reading History Workshop Series.  There, I included several tools we’re using and the approach we took to working with single documents.

In last week’s session, we moved from interpreting single documents to working with multiple documents.  We used:

  • a document packet tied to southern attitudes regarding school segregation;
  • an organizing tool used to scaffold historical thinking in synthesizing the documents; and
  • the expanding conversation approach to aide with literacy struggles (see this explanation and this diagram.)

After this examination of ways to scaffold student investigations, groups turned to developing their demonstration lessons.  They used this planning guide, inspired by our friends in Placer County.

Teacher groups will complete their lesson planning at our next meeting December 9, with demonstration events occurring 12/10-12/16.
