This webinar provides an inquiry-based framework (Great/Not so Great) to help elementary-level students learn about differences in opinions about historical figures before constructing their own evaluation of these figures based on textual evidence. This framework consists of a step-by-step approach for supporting lower elementary-level students to evaluate the “great” and “not so great” characteristics of any historical figure through an examination of a variety of text types (i.e., textbooks, primary sources, children’s literature, etc.). The framework is based on elements of the NCSS C3 Framework for grades K-3 as well as suggestions found in the social studies literature.
