The project was not an easy feat, but they made it their own and far exceeded expectations! Social history emphasizes the interaction of different groups in society. This concept began in the 1960s and initially focused on disenfranchised social groups, but later began to focus more attention on the middle and upper classes. The US History students of 2019/20 have not only gained a deep understanding of a portion of history through their interviews, but they have also provided a public service via the publication of their interviews. For example, this project will serve as a primary source database for use by future students, community members, and even researchers around the world!
i.e. 28: Mind Over Matter
Wondering just how far you should push your students, or even yourself? These days, it seems that stepping outside of our comfort zone and doing something strenuous is more of the exception than the rule. As controversial as it might seem, this episode asks our colleagues to consider pushing their students just a little bit harder than they may have before, and to even consider this advice for themselves!

Welcome to "i.nspiration e.ducation!" Cassi Thomas ("Mama T") and Meg Chandler ("Chan"), passionate educators at an independent school in southern Arizona, offer weekly encouragement to all educators, in all arenas. In essence, i.e. grew out of our own desire to take lifelong learning and professional development as a collaborative daily challenge, and to pass on our own formative learning to others.

Our themes focus on: authentic and intentional relationships with students, student centered learning, inquiry/problem based learning, differentiated instruction, 21st Century skills, authentic assessments, deeper learning, instructional design, and best practices in instruction! (Just to name a few...)
