Overview

Teachers who have used family and local history projects in the classroom have found that a classroom community is fostered as learners discover similarities as well as differences in their backgrounds. When teachers use strategies and plan lessons that build on prior knowledge by incorporating each child's own cultural learning and experiences, children are empowered as learners. In other words, family history projects could be the key to forging connections in the classroom. This book will motivate children to learn about history and social studies by beginning with what they already know - home life, family life, ethnic/cultural life - and building on that personal knowledge by adding information from family and community resources. Let Hickey's activity-packed text help you show your students that history is not about the past but about all of us - our families, our communities, our living history.
