Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

    A resource book for teachers who would like to approach history from a meaning-centered, whole-language perspective.
    - Social Studies ; the Young Learner

History Workshop is the first book to describe a process approach to history teaching that builds on children's natural curiosity about the past. Karen Jorgensen bases her work on the sociolinguistic premise that history learning is a language-thinking process in which children create historical meaning as they interact with others. In her book, she describes how children understand history and how she adapts the writing workshop approach to create a studio environment that encourages students to discover and rethink theories as they talk, read, write, and draw.

History Workshop is filled with insights about how children develop historical literacy and how teachers can support this process in the classroom.
