In this lively, step-by-step text you will find everything you need to carry out family history projects that will engage even your most reluctant students. Strategies for organizing in-depth exploration of their own heritage and activities for articulating and sharing their new knowledge are clearly explained in units that include:
You will learn how to promote strong writing about family history, use other expressive forms such as "sketch-to-stretch," to link family history with literature and math, find Internet resources and government archives for tracing family origins, and meaningfully assess student work. Wide choices and options are described, so that all students--whatever their family make-up--can feel included. Strategies for relating family history projects to district standards and requirements allow teachers to ensure that necessary curriculum is covered even as the strategies support students' ownlines of inquiry.
"History Comes Home" will help you expand the widely-used "family tree" assignment into a rich and powerful part of your teaching that will strengthen your students' skills in writing, research, and thinking, and help your classroom come alive with learning across the curriculum.
