Watched PART II of David George Video:

Brenda wrote key words on the board of the video:

She drew the World View Compass on the SS Program of Studies on page 3: @


Vision    K-12     21st Century     Citizenship     Perspectives: Aboriginal & Franco phone & Other

Pluralism     interdisciplinary     issues   critical inquiry

THINKING: Geographic thinking     Historical Thinking   Metacognitive & Creative thinking

***As Teachers we are: moving them from what to think to —-> showing them of HOW to think & how to be in control of their KNOWING HOW

SS is about REAL PEOPLE who contributed or are part of history
