Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article shares aspects to consider when designing and implementing content area instruction through the study of people. It begins with a description of an inquiry that investigated students’ learning with the use of authentic literature and meaningful writing in social studies, and then extends to a discussion of how to apply these same instructional principles across content areas. To extend, it discusses texts and learning experiences to consider when creating curriculum centered on people.
