1 - 2 weeks availability
Put new life into the teaching of Columbus! This book offers an insightful description of inquiry teaching and shows - through classroom exercises, writing assignments, discussion topics, and thoughtful reading selections - how to apply inquiry to the topic of Columbus in the New World. Rather than providing a "recipe" approach to teaching, Barlowe provokes us to think more deeply about what we teach, why we teach it, and how to engage students in the ever-fascinating study of history, an "argument without end." Book features include: an inquiry case study of an American history unit on Columbus; explicit descriptions of classroom exercises and assignments; and examples of student work.
Introduction to Inquiry Teaching; Engaging Students in History; Debate, Discussion, and Writing; Teaching Columbus; Geography and Columbus's Predecessors; Assignments and Activities: Developing Inquiry Skills; Final Paper and Conclusion.
