I have been teaching 8th Grade Social Studies for 6 years.
I love hand's-on activities to get students involved. I also use a lot of collaborative pair work. I think it's crucial to have students communicate with their peers in a classroom setting. I have been slowly "flipping my classroom" to integrate more technology and keep my precious class time for aiding students.
