Product Description
This handbook contains 8 problem-based learning and simulation lessons for a range of social studies courses including Civics and government, World History, European History, and United States History. The lessons are intended to help students connect at an experiential level with the content that serves as the foundation of each lesson. These lessons are built on the premise that by living an experience or event rather than simply hearing about an experience or event, students will be more engaged in that content and will better retain the information. Each lesson is designed around 6 key elements to PBL/simulations: definition of the problem and setting; definition of roles and responsibilities; encountering the problem; accessing, evaluating, and utilizing information related to the problem; synthesis and/or performance of a solution; and debriefing content. Product also includes free rubric for assessing seminar participation.
