My presentation partner and I are both librarians and have experience presenting with American Association of School Librarians. We thought a book talk of current books for Social Studies teachers would be a good idea.
On Friday, we are presenting Recommended Reads for Middle Grade Social Studies Teachers: World War II to present. These books match the current Virginia Standards of Learning for History & Social Science US History. Virginia is not a Common Core state.
Included in an abbreviated slide show of our talk on the VCSS Conference website one can find:
- A link to a bibliography of books. (presentation titles are highlighted)
- Criteria for title selection
- Link to suggest titles--if there is a title you would like to see included (must meet criteria of the VA SOLs above)
- A curation activity with lesson plan and materials
It IS Poetry Friday and hosted by the amazing, talented blogger, Jama who writes about food and literature! What could be better? I highly recommend a stop over at her blog to see what's cooking.
