Heather’s Workshops: 

Session 1

The 7 C’s Across the Curriculum

How can you help children connect the historical events they learn about during Bible instruction, to what they are learning in other subject areas? Using the “7 C’s of History” as a framework, participants will investigate ways to connect the 7 C’s to various content areas. Practical strategies—including those that promote hands-on learning and critical thinking—will be discussed across multiple subjects.
