Learn how to integrate S.O.A.P. and cartoon analysis skills with the various types of stimuli which are appearing more frequently on assessments. Try some new pedagogical strategies as you prepare for this year’s assessments. Practice de-contextualizing DBQ’s focusing on who penned the document, its purpose and significance.   Learn strategies for teaching students to expand and improve essays using economics and make better choices in answering multiple choice questions.
