"I've never been good at history." This is the mental barrier heard by many history teachers. Today, history is not solely about memorizing facts and events. It's about judging mistakes and praising good decisions throughout history. This involves a high level of analysis. Students have to go on a journey through time and see the event from the perspective of the people who were there. That is the challenge of a teacher who desires to maintain a high level of rigor in their lessons. Mr. Dave Harms joins this edition of The Marvin Byrd Show. He shares with us a simulation he created to increase rigor and engage all students.
