Why the Program Unique
Exploring History is unique for four reasons:
- It engages students in simulation
- It offers differentiation of instruction
- It exposes students to multiple perspectives
- It supports literacy across the content areas
Simulations Like No Other Program
The program makes history come alive because of its engaging and hands-on materials and content. Students get a multi-dimensional view of each subject because the program includes such materials as student handbooks, 100 rubrics, overhead transparencies, a multi- media CD, cards, maps, and more! Exploring History has a lasting effect and the experience for both teachers and students is unmatched.
A Differentiated Program that Maximizes Student Involvement
"Differentiated" means that Exploring History can be simultaneously taught to and absorbed by a culturally and academically heterogeneous classroom while instruction remains constant and at a high standard. This is made possible because the program includes two separate handbooks for each lesson. One handbook is written at the intermediate level; the other at a higher level to challenge the young intellect. Exploring History maximizes student participation/involvement and interactivity because there is an "instant appeal" for ALL students, even those of different races, cultures, ethnic groups and academic levels.
Learning Critical Problem-Solving Skills
Exploring History teaches students to consider multiple perspectives; an invaluable long term problem-solving skill that favors/encourages an equitable and fair resolution.
Increasing Literacy Across the Content Areas
The major goal of the program is to stimulate students to talk content in a meaningful way. Exploring History encourages literacy in the social studies or humanities classroom. It fosters the student's ability to read for meaning, write for a purpose, speak persuasively, and use active listening during simulation and interactive learning.
