DOCUMENT-BASED WHOLE-CLASS DISCUSSION

Document-based whole-class discussion is a classroom activity where students engage in the interpretation and reconciliation of multiple historical documents. Rather than a heated debate, the classroom dynamic resembles a deliberative seminar, where the teacher plays an active role in facilitating student participation.

You can download a detailed description, with handouts. Another teaching resource from your friends at teachinghistory.org
