Skits can help students consider history from different perspectives

NCSS SmartBrief | Jan 26, 2015

One way to help students see historical events from different perspectives is to have them act out scenes from history, writes history teacher Jody Passanisi. In one simulation, student teams act out the same Revolutionary War battle scene, but each team must view the events through another player's eyes. The exercise, she writes, can bring about shifts in thinking that lead to an understanding of the events and beyond. MiddleWeb (01/25)
