Social Studies
  • Higher Order Thinking Skills

    By studying the world as it was in the past, we can better make connections to why it is like it is now. Essential Questions will be an integral part in this process. Using Essential Questions, our students will gain a better understanding of the content they will be interacting with. My hope is to instill Higher Order Thinking Skills (H.O.T.S) in our young people so that when they are faced with the complex questions of life they will be better equipped to solve them with intelligence, understanding and compassion. Some examples of Essential Questions are:
    • How can war be both good and bad?
    • How do you think the rise of industry/technology affects the strength of a country?
    • What is destiny?
    • Is the United States a moral government? Why or why not?
    • What is conflict?



    We will be using various resources as we explore the history of the world from the 1500's to the present. Some of the resources are listed below:

    • I Think
    • Nearpod
    • Flocabulary
    • BrainPop
    • EdPuzzle
    • Discovery Education
    • NoRedInk
    • Various Google products such as Google Classroom, Google doc. Google Forms and Google Jamboard
