Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Notable Sands of Time: Seeing the Relationship Between Historical Events in Texts - Section 4: Demonstrate Skills


One of the key shifts in the ELA CCSS is that students gain a knowledge in the disciplines, or world, through reading text.  I think this lesson, where students are putting together their own timelines to see how events in history correlated to each other, but doing this all based on texts they've read, is a one example of how we can help meet this shift in our lesson planning.  Using texts we've read to build a knowledge of the world and history is what the shift suggests, and here the students are, in third grade, making a note of how books they've read have informed them about the turn-of-the-century.
