ORDER YOUR TRANSCRIPT

For your participation in Connecting to the Past, you have earned Three Graduate Non-Degree Credit Semester Hours from the Ohio State University.

For an official record of those hours, you may request a transcript from Ohio State. Those credits will be posted after August 20, 2012.

To get a transcript, you must order it on-line.

Note: Only YOU can order a transcript. Entities that cannot order your transcript include: The History Teaching Institute, Tri-County Educational Service Center, the Ohio Historical Society, and the Connecting to the Past program

Before ordering a transcript, please read the Overview and proceed through the tabs, "Payment" "Authorization" and "Pricing." To order transcript, you will click on the "Start My Order" button on the upper right of the screen accessed at the link above. Note that your credit is being assigned in the Summer Semester 2012.

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discussion is a classroom activity where students engage in the interpretation and reconciliation of multiple historical documents.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
