Who Will Take Us In? The Plight of the Refugee

Critically evaluate U.S. immigration policy and presidential leadership by examining two timeframes: the Holocaust and the current refugee crisis. Analyze what displaced persons have to say about their experiences.

Museums-Expanding Our Vision of the Traditional Classroom

Investigate researched-based museum methods on the American Revolution from Colonial Williamsburg master teachers. Character interpretation, hands-on learning, and technology provide innovative historical visions of 21st-century skills for students.

Deeper Thinking DBQ

Gain an understanding of the value of Document-Based Questions, and how to change the focus from an open analysis to a deeper analysis while incorporating argumentative writing skills within each document analysis. Participants will also identify ways to scaffold the DBQ process for special population students, ELL and Special Needs. Participants will gain an understanding of how to include documents to teach content and learning that is student-centered instead of teacher-centered. World War I documents will be used to drive the session.
