Good morning! My school leadership team is working on a school improvement
plan (SIP) which is required by our county. They were stymied in finding
articles about best practices for teaching social studies (an area here that
needs improvement according to test scores). It finally dawned on them to
ask me after spending nearly 3 hours of fruitless searching...
Since the ball is now in my court I want to WOW them with articles (less
than 4 years old) showing that collaboration between teachers of social
studies and the teacher librarian is one of the most effective ways of
bringing up test scores. I am looking for articles that provide research to
back the claim as well as those that highlight hands-on projects, a research
component, and use of multi-media by students to help them move from
hearing/reading to doing/learning. If anyone can put their hands on such
things quickly, please respond to me off list and I will post a hit. TIA!
