Our first unit is on Ancient Greece. Being the social studies teacher that I am I knew exactly what I wanted to cover (and found the free templates here). Information sources include a history textbook, non-fiction books, websites, and documentaries. So which is the most valuable? I think that each have their own strengths and weaknesses. By using different sources it gives a depth and breath to the learning that would not happen with just one kind of information. Maybe I should have named this post Textbooks and Tradebooks.
So what do you think, textbooks, tradebooks, both or neither?
