Flipping the Classroom

I use a lot of videos to flip my classroom. Students get more out of the flipped lesson if you record your own videos. Click here for a sample video. #flippingtheclassroom #heuveltontech


Students are collaborating on essays for the North Country Historical Writing Contest. #hcsbulldogfamily #heuveltontech

Reconstruction Introduction

I like to introduce students to Reconstruction by playing a song called "I'm a Good Ole Rebel" and discussing the lyrics with them. This year I'm dividing students into groups and asking them to answer these questions: 1. How does this song make you feel? 2. What idea is the song writer concerned about? 3. What are the most important words in the song? Why? 4. How do you connect with the song? Lyrics are provided to each student. With the protests over Confederate statues I'm also going to read and discuss an article in Junior Scholastic with students about the topic. This lesson was designed for 8th graders. #heuveltonbulldogfamily #Reconstruction #Confederatemonuments
