The Co-Constructing of Knowledge in the History Classroom

This poster describes Collaborative Learning techniques developed as part of a course redesign in a general survey United States History course. It focuses on strategies developed that help create a sense of the co-construction of knowledge in the classroom. Starting with the cultures, concerns and hopes of the students’ ownership of learning, a sense of community and responsibility toward the learning of others is built up. The poster is interspersed with the voices of students’ reflections, samples of work produced and evaluations.
