Invitation To Teachers Of American History
BE THE MOST POPULAR TEACHER
IN YOUR SCHOOL
How? Present history as a way to enrich the lives of your students, and do it with stories and the life lessons that come with those stories.
Can the Algebra teacher or the Chem teacher do that? You know the answer,.
You will help your students discover their own leadership ability, the positive results of a strong character, and how to succeed on a daily basis.
From this unique vantage point, history gets very personal.
Why use stories? Because history is composed of stories of men and women who faced extraordinary circumstances and opportunities.
Another reason for telling stories…Why do we read a novel? Go to the movies? Or watch our favorite TV show? Because we love stories.
Plus, we are all emotional creatures, and stories connect to our emotions, which is why we remember facts better when we are emotionally connected to them.
For example, when we watch a TV news report, we won’t learn of a new drug that cures a specific illness. Instead, a TV reporter will tell the story of a person who was ill, and how the new drug provided a cure.
With stories your teaching of history can be stimulating and personal in a brand new way. And we already know that the mind loves novelty.
And you will use video to engage your students because you know their most popular source of information is video.
NOTE: My program is not designed to replace how you teach history. It is simply a template, or a model you can use to tell stories from history, any history, for the purpose of gleaning a valuable lesson your students can use after leaving your class.
Also, the video series is not about the battle of Gettysburg. It uses Gettysburg as a model on how to learn valuable life lessons from any historical event.
This model can be used to inspire your own students to work with the school's graphic arts/video department to produce your own videos with lessons the students discover on their own.
And what they produce can be used by future classes in the same subject area.
The end result is to get students hooked on history as a very cool subject. And you may become the only teacher who makes learning emotionally connecting and personally rewarding. And very cool.
PROOF: The video series has been tested on more than 2,500 Facebook followers over the past three years, and the continued response remains positive.
I am currently looking for school history departments to test the series in their own classrooms as an experiment without being charged.
