Integrating Political and Social History into a United States History Curriculum Considering the Constraints of Standardized Testing
MetadataShow full item record
The idea for this project grew out of a history course that looked at many interpretations of history and attempted to explain how each could or should fit into society. I thought back to my own high school history education and realized how much more prepared I would have been for the world had I been equipped with a better understanding of the historical society we live in. Given the trend toward increasing the importance of standardized tests in public schools, I wanted to understand the potential relationship between my new integrated curriculum and the standards of the state of Michigan. In short, I studied this topic to determine if an in depth consideration of social history could be taught within the framework of standardized test expectations. This work is preliminary and more research in needed.
