"My style consist of critical thinking question driven discussions that I begin yet allow the students to facilitate through dialogue. I initially begin each lesson by teaching the specific goal of the content and facilitating a discussion as a means to both keep students engaged and assess their understanding of what was taught. School textbooks are generally used on an as-needed basis: course text are comprised of current texts that are historical non-fiction or historical fiction surrounding our course units. I also incorporate film - documentaries, to expose issues that our curriculum seeks to bright to light for student growth."
