Tips for new History Teachers
One of our recent Mount Alums, Jody Passanisi, has joined forces with some colleagues to provide new History/Social Science teachers with advice and resources. Please feel free to check out her contributions to the field. They begin their blog with the following...
"Congratulations on your new social studies class! Whether you are teaching fourth grade social studies, or seventh grade history, you are probably feeling a combination of excitement and trepidation. Maybe we can help with the trepidation!
