In the political climate of 2017, students need to understand their own identity as citizens and people living in a diverse society. The Racial/Cultural Identity model (R/CID) is a framework to help students understand their own race but other races in their communities and US as a whole.
"The purpose of using the R/CID model to analyze and evaluate a film, such as [Malcolm X] is twofold. It allows the teacher to begin to tear down a colorblind classroom and begin to integrate Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT)" (Nance & Williams, 2016).
Guiding students through a replication of famous experiments ensures an understanding of the experimental method, a demonstration of the skills of the research process, and increases free response scores.
Participate in hands-on, active learning exercises designed to address issues related to good citizenry, cultural proficiency, and critical thinking skills. This session is geared toward all psychology courses.
Social studies educators teach students the content knowledge, intellectual skills, and civic values necessary for fulfilling the duties of citizenship in a participatory democracy. The mission of National Council for the Social Studies is to provide leadership, service, and support for all social studies educators.
