As a middle school teacher of social studies, it was something that I hoped to evoke in my students as we studied certain periods in US History as a way to have them understand why it is important to learn about our past.
We read primary sources, viewed photographs, watched videos - all to help with the learning process.
I've also been doing some reserach on service learning and thinking about how to integrate it into our curriculum so that our students have an impact on our world - and help create as sustainable future. Not entirely related to writing but I thought I would share this video!!
