This Patio will focus on discussing “History & Literature Coming Alive” in 3rd through 4 grade teachers:
Making history come to life for students can make all the difference in their retention of information presented to them. What better way to bring history to life for them than to combine it with literature of the same time period? Providing students opportunities to “experience” a certain period in history will give them lifelong memories while adding to their building blocks of knowledge.
