Reconstruction Era: Visual Teaching andLearning

When I teach history to high school or college age students, I maximize the efficient use of visuals. We are all visual learners, no matter what your textual reading level. So, why not engage everyone in your classroom with visuals? This is an image loaded with symbolism. In order to understand the symbolism behind each piece of this image, I teach students how to perform a discovery based learning method -- VTS -- and then I have them use ThingLink to share their findings about the image with the class. Take a peek at this one. Drag your cursor over the "tags" on the image to see what I am talking about.
