About Pamela

In order for a child to be successful in school they must be able to retain what the teacher presents as keys terms and concepts related to the subject content. Oftentimes, when we "learn" a new concept we retain the information long enough to pass the exam/quiz on that particular aspect/concept, only to forget the key facts after the exam/quiz because we memorized the information instead of Learning the information. Although the use of memory is essential to the learning process, memory must be facilitated when introducing a new concept within a particular subject content.

Hello, my name is Pamela, a secondary social studies/history teacher that knows how to teach reading in the content area. Many think of history as bunch of facts about events and the dates of those events. As a result, students try to memorize history, with hopes of being successful on the next exam/quiz. The only problem with this method is that history is not the multiplication table, this weeks list of spelling words(even though there is vocabulary in most classroom history lessons), or a poem for English class. History is a comprehensive subject, it requires developing a plan of study. As a classroom teacher, I employed a hands on approach teaching practice, allowing my students to touch history with the use of methods that will help your child comprehensively and successfully learn History/social studies.

Included, but not limited to, in these methods are: graphic organizers, theme based projects, guided practice of oral presentations, review strategies for exams/quizzes, term/concept paper preparation, IL Public Law Exam instruction(exercises & assessments).
