Teaching Research-Based Writing through History
Delise Sanders of Sumner Schools presented at the 2008 National Council of History Education Annual Conference on the topic of integrating writing into history instruction. In addition to her focus on use of primary sources, she introduced methods for teaching intermediate-level students to research-based writing projects. Many of her ideas were shared during the session II slideshow. In addition, Sanders provided permission to share her project notes here. Called "The Big Fifth Grade Research Project," Sanders assists teachers to replicate her method of guiding students through the research and writing process.
