This blog is supervised by Peter Pappas with contributions from his undergraduate / graduate social studies methods class ~ ED 456/533E at the University of Portland’s School of Education.

We utilize a practical, hands-on, project-based approach to mastering the art and science of teaching secondary social studies. More here. Our course goals:

  1. Learn to think like a historian (or other social scientist).
  2. Become a skillful instructional designer.
  3. Develop skills for reflection, growth and professional networking.

When Peter is not teaching at UP he can be found teaching at University of Alaska Southeast, blogging at Copy / Paste or lurking on Twitter @edteck
