Teachers can emphasize comprehension, encourage creative thinking, and promote transfer across disciplines to help students:
* Explore primary sources to uncover practical and relevant information
* Construct careful arguments to integrate new learning with prior knowledge
* Question deeply held assumptions to arrive at authentic understandings
* Approach new ideas with confidence
Take your students through meaningful learning experiences and make knowledge come alive!
