Highlights in History: Teaching with Differentiated Instruction


--Kay A. Chick

The author describes three examples, illustrating how teachers can differentiate classroom activities by
(a) students’ readiness, (b) student interests, and (c) learning preferences. These books are used in the teaching examples -- "1968" by Michael Kaufman; "I’ll Pass for Your Comrade: Women Soldiers in the Civil War" by Anita Silvey; and "Great Peacemakers: True Stories from Around the World" by Ken Beller and Heather Chase (the latter includes chapters on M.L. King Jr., H. D. Thoreau, and several other Americans).

Interdisciplinary Activities Using Census in Schools


--Janice Jefferson

A U.S. history timeline is available at www.census.gov if you click on the “History & Pop Culture” icon. Colorful, illustrated webpages appear with all sorts of facts and figures about a time period, from 1790 to the present. Interestingly, this wonderful resource--of interest to all students in grade levels K-college--is not easily found with a Google search on the key words “census” and “timeline.”
Other U.S. Census resources are described in this and other articles to be found in the March/April 2010 issue of SOCIAL STUDIES AND THE YOUNG LEARNER, available in the NCSS Journal Archives.
