The teacher used concept mapping to activate students' background knowledge, included Internet-based reading materials to generate interest; scanned the textbook in order to provide an audio version of it; and provided choices for assessment (i.e., multimedia presentation, writing a book, performance) . The teacher becomes a "museum curator" and develops (or uses already existing) exhibits for students to examine, interpret, and understand some aspect of social studies, such as a person (e.g., John Brown, Abraham Lincoln); a place (e.g., Israel, Africa); event (e.g., the Revolutionary War, the Middle Passage); or issue (e.g., the evolution of human rights: women's suffrage, South Africa and apartheid).
