Crafting Steam-inspired Social Studies Lesson

Led by Belle Meade Historic Site’s Education Director, this workshop will highlight the element most often missing from history education narratives – the “how” of history, in other words, the intersection of social studies and STEAM subjects.  We encourage you to stretch your lessons beyond the story of what people in the past did by considering how they did it.  Our method of lesson planning leads to discussions of historic technologies and establishes a relatable context for students to better understand historical players.  

STEAM-inspired history lessons easily lend themselves to hands-on learning and project-based learning experiences.  In this workshop, participants will learn a simple 4-step thought process that seamlessly integrates science, art, and empathy into their history curriculum.  Come prepared to brainstorm fun and interactive additions to your lessons and we will share some of our best tips for hands-on learning!  At the end of the workshop, leave with a ready-to-implement, cross-curricular lesson plan!
