• Students use their social media skills to post  responses and share them with the teacher or with the class.

    No student is a bystander,  because, in order to see what others have posted and to advance through the lesson, every student must participate and post a response. Students are motivated to stay engaged, in order to comment on their peers’ posts.

  • Students use a mix of articles, videos, primary  sources, and maps to access curricular content  and gather information

  • Students take notes in graphic organizers

  • Students answer supporting questions

  • Students label maps, create timelines, sequence  events

  • Students continue to construct questions

  • Students read other perspectives

    answer them of an experience

  • Many of the OER articles and secondary reading passages are accompanied by an article summary. Teachers can place students into two Reading Groups when assigning the experience: one group will automatically be linked to summaries, and the other group will be linked to the full articles. The summaries provide a link to the full article. In addition,  the learning experience Student Pack often includes additional resources for challenging the more advanced students. 

    As a web-based curriculum, students who need to read portions of an experience in their native language can use Chrome’s Google Translate extension to automatically translate a  selected portion or even the entire experience. Shared peer responses are also translated when using this feature.
