This is a pedagogical approach that gives students opportunity to explore history and social studies by focusing on areas of interest and to express their own creative and finally, to take responsibility of their own learning.
This pedagogical approach is optimal for any study of history and social studies.
There are, in essence, 3 key areas in the study of history:
1) Monumental Events and Inventions: key historical events that were instrumental in shaping our cultural, societal, and personal/ideological identities.
2) Monumental People: key historical people that were instrumental in shaping our cultural, societal, and personal/ideological identities.
3) Critical Study of History: The errs of the past that should influence us today to change and adapt.
