Big History Comes to Forest Park

Big History integrates the insights of the sciences with the humanities into lessons designed for students to think about the past and future.  According to Big History, by sharing “the big picture” and challenging students to explore the relationship between key events over time, Big History ultimately helps young people develop key critical thinking skills and the ability to better synthesize and apply complex information.

Are you looking for ways to integrate technology with the world history classroom, critical thinking, reading like a historian, making an argument and the Common Core?

You are invited to learn the answers to these questions on March 12, and to hear from teachers and creators of Big History why educators love the Big History Project for 9th and 10th grade history students.  And don’t miss the opportunity to meet Bob Bain, Professor of Education, University of Michigan and contributor to the Big History Project, and partake in drinks and hors d’oeuvres at the Forest Park Visitor Center. This event is bring your own device optional, and in partnership with Forest Park Forever & Big History.

This after school event is free, but registration is required.
