So What? The Big Picture Tool
Provides unit organizers for each history standard. Each organizer includes key information, vocabulary, names, and dates, as well as opportunities to synthesize big ideas, causes, and effects. Two historical sources allow students to apply what they've learned. Furthermore, students are also asked to reflect on their own ideas, learning, and growth.
Each So What! Big Picture Tool includes a Unit Processor, Student Instruction Step Sheet, and Teacher Notes. An example for Expansion, Growth, and Reform is provided below.
