Too much content often results in too little learning, but deciding what to “leave out” can feel impossible. How can you help your students master all the essential skills and standards while still providing them with a robust knowledge of your course content? By allowing individual students to make choices about specific content for more in-depth examination, you can create lessons and units that give your students more meaningful exposure to the many events, people, and concepts that make up your social studies course.

This session will include ideas that lend themselves to all social social courses, and includes sample lessons for Global Studies, US History, and AP Psychology courses.
