History is taught using the structure and sequence of CUSP within blocks throughout the year. The two-day block will allow for deeper learning within a lesson. Lessons will include key tier III vocabulary to build children’s skills in working with historical information. Lessons will revisit past learning, introduce new knowledge and engage children in active participation in their learning. Teachers will engage in key questioning to help build critical analysis to be able to compare and make inferences about historical objects. Ongoing quizzing or other means to assess learning will help teachers and children alike gauge progress.
