  1. EA History Department:Philosophy, Overview, Outcomes

  2. EA History Department Philosophy:A Spiraling, Skills-based Approach Philosophy: • Skills-based approach to content-heavy courses • Build critical thinking skills from Bloom’s Taxonomy through essential questions: “what, how and why?” • Emphasize 3 C’s: content (what), connections (how), causation (why) • Pre-write and/or Rewrite (prewrite write rewrite) • Exam prep (World History SAT II & AP) as a means to achieve our pedagogical ends: enhancing critical thinking through writing • Clarity and Consistency in grading and instruction

  3. Philosophy: Skills-based approach to content-heavy course • Skills spiral; repeated each year with increasing levels of sophistication

  4. Basic Skills:Organizational/planning: Emphasize knowledge, understanding, application— the “what”: who, what, when, where • Reading • Note-taking • Test-taking strategies • Budgeting time • Miscellaneous (follow directions, problem solve, be open to many views, advocate for self, eg.

  5. Advanced skills:Critical thinking Emphasize analysis, evaluation, synthesis: the “how and why” • Analysis skills (cause and effect, primary source analysis, connections, eg.) • Writing skills (pre-writing, thesis development, organization, eg.) • Research skills (outlining, categorization, citation, eg.)
