Welcome to United States History
Here at Centralia Middle School, history class looks a little different. For years educators have known that students have a wide range of learning styles (students, and adults, learn in different ways) If this is true, why is the textbook the primary method teachers use to teach history? At Centralia Middle School we have a different approach. Simulations, mock trials, mini-dramas, storytelling and a wide variety of interactive lessons have replaced the textbook as the dominant source for learning history. Each unit incorporates as many different learning styles as possible. Parents and educators, I invite you to come in and take a look at not only what, but also how, your 8th grade students are learning history.
