Make History Relative – Using Genealogy to Teach History

This live presentation will air on:

FRIDAY - September 23rd - 5pm Pacific time

This workshop will be taught in the 2016 Not Back to School Summit - REGISTER HERE for live access!

This is my favorite way to teach history and it had a huge impact on motivating my kids to want to know more about history.  Kids want to go deeper and are more engaged, and surprisingly they remember dates, places, and events much better when they can connect them to their own ancestors.  Come learn how to incorporate your own family heritage to create a rich, engaging social studies curriculum!
