I taught world history, honors world history and AP world history in Florida before I moved home to Pennsylvania to become a full-time mommy. As a fun note, all of the elementary school level social studies lessons have been designed and used with my own children. As the oldest grows older, more will be created.
I like students to shout out answers and questions. I like to give students the ability to learn in their comfort zone. Don't want to talk? That's fine. Don't want to work in a group? That's fine. We just need to establish ground rules. Integrating all subjects was my goal as a teacher and it is a goal as a teacher-author. It takes MUCH longer as a teacher-author but as my store grows there will be more options for integrated subjects.
