Remix of Histrory
ReMix of Historyby: Michael Downes- Social Studies Innovator classes 850, 860, 808 Mr. Nolan Adams Class 808 Dr. Rose Reissman Director of the Writing Institute (2012)
This book integrates digital media 8th grade curricula study, replete with you tube excerpts, films, songs, Internet resources and archival documents/footage to immediately access and engage students in 8th grade history. This multimeda method integral to the Downes style of teaching, integrates text complexity (inlcuding print and digital texts), text dependent questions, tasks, broad range of texts, academic /domain specific vocabulary with writing and research. While students are "remixing history" with zest, they are also performing joyuously all the rigors of the 5 Pillars for Common Core ELA and Content Area Literacy.
