Whether you are asking students to analyze a historical photograph, order events in a chronological progression, or compare primary source documents written during a specific time period, teaching social studies means immersing students in learning about people and their relationships with one another and the world. The Spotlight on Strategies (CDN Version) series offers many opportunities for students to investigate different perspectives, explore new ideas, and develop understanding of the progression of events over time.
