Both the novice & veteran teacher--on a traditional schedule of forty-five or fifty-five minutes per class period or a block schedule--have little time to spend designing innovative activities & projects. Yet these make such an important difference in the classroom. Creative assignments can enhance lessons, spark student interest, & serve as assessments of genuine learning that tests do not always measure. Based on the highest levels of Bloom's taxonomy, this volume easily integrates technology into every core high school social studies course as well as two electives. Creative assignments are designed to appeal to visual, auditory, & kinesthetic learning styles as the students are immersed in research, role-playing, art, & other activities. This book also offers tips for differentiation, as needed, with a particular emphasis on modifications for special education students who have processing difficulties.
