A PASSION FOR THE PAST
Creative Teaching of U.S. History
Author James Percoco, selected by USA Today as one of America’s best teachers, gets middle schoolers out of the doldrums and into activities that help them make sense of history, question previous assumptions, and, ultimately, develop a keen understanding of the nation’s past. Percoco shows how to revive instruction with primary sources, interviews, media tie-ins, guest speakers, art projects, visits to historic sites, and much more. Includes sources for information and documents and proven ways to handle active-teaching logistics. Foreword by Gary Nash.
