Ohey, re-#introductions look fun.
I'm an out-on-leave and increasingly likely to be former social studies teacher who moonlights as an amateur researcher into obscure history and weird science, aka I write scifi & fantasy stories where I work really hard to avoid eurocentric perspectives... which means I do a ton of research, which means I ask a lot of questions.
but I try to answer things sometimes too 😅
Welcome new friends!
@eleanorkonik I completely forgot you're a social studies teacher 😂
Can I ask you a social studies teacherly question
@Cyborgneticz of course! always! 💚 I think I've actually answered some of your teaching questions before
@eleanorkonik I'm trying to mix up short projects to practice research (1 hour to research from a list of topics present; week to do this requires academic sources) but I'm wondering if you know any other ones? WWI is boring. I'm going to assign my students different countries during the Treaty of Versailles for a debate
@eleanorkonik Yes or just other student centered short projects which let them pursue their interest but builds some skills.
I've cultivated a decent collection of projects I can use to assess them, but I'm always looking for more.
