Abstract

This curriculum project is intended to engage students in Social Sciences content using both modern and personal media devices. This project asks students to choose and research two historical figures from US history. Multiple sources are then used to engage in debate and deliberation with classmates’ chosen figures. The navigating tool of the unit will be Twitter, in which students will disseminate classroom information and formulate historical interpretations while focusing on debate in a civic manner. Students will utilize research, analytic and debate skills throughout the unit. Additionally they will have chance to use personal media as an educational tool.
