When it comes to learning the history of a given time or place, there’s no better way than to immerse students in the subject matter and forge an emotional connection with the time and place they’re studying. That’s where the history comes alive and provides the depth in which students can explore, discover and understand on their own.
We believe extending the classroom to the real-world and giving students the opportunity to learn experientially is the absolute best way to empower students to become global citizens. That’s why we’ve enlisted the help of retired world languages teacher and ACIS Academic Travel Advisor Nicolette Miller to create these 3 Lesson Plans based on The New Bloom’s Taxonomy for Social Studies Instruction. She uses an Online Tour of The Lincoln Memorial as the subject matter for 3 different lesson plans.
This guide is for Social Studies and History teachers who wish to make their instruction about the subject matter come alive through virtual tourism in the social studies classroom.
Taking an online virtual tour of the Lincoln Memorial provides a lesson in US History and an opportunity for students to see a public memorial up close and to learn about the role of Abraham Lincoln in American history.
These 3 Lesson Plans engage students by helping them build critical thinking skills in 3 key areas:
- Knowledge – Identification and recall of information
- Application – Use of facts, rules, and principles
- Evaluation – Developing opinions, judgements, or decisions
While experiencing The Lincoln Memorial in person is a life-changing experience, we hope exposing your students to American History via these lesson plans gives your students the inspiration to take the leap into exploring Washington, D.C. in the real world.
