I've been teaching Social Studies/History for 12 years and I've taught in both public and independent schools. I've taught core survey courses and several electives.
The key to my educational philosophy is variation--there is no one style that will work for all your students, so I try to mix it up! I love group work and student-based projects, but sometimes a power point presentation is good for content delivery too.
