Hoggatt brings his experience into classrooms for a week (approximately one hour per classroom per day). During this time, students learn history through the use of artwork, primary documents, classroom discussion, and engaging presentations. For the first two days, Mr. Hoggatt engages the class. For two more days, the classroom teacher will be called upon to “team teach” with Mr. Hoggatt. On the final day, the classroom teacher will lead and Mr. Hoggatt will observe. Mr. Hoggatt even leaves an additional set of lessons for the teacher to utilize after the residency concludes.
Not only does the class benefit, but the teacher also receives direct experiential training - not only as a demonstration, but through supervised practice and feedback in hopes that history, as a subject, does not continue to be marginalized or avoided altogether.
Units of Study
Important Note: Materials and presentations during History in Residence address state standards and do not support a political movement or ideology. The focus is placed on artifact analysis, primary sources, and empathy and does not promote or deny modern, hot-button topics.
