Dr.  Yohuru  Williams  will  ignite your history and social studies lessons with   his  innovative  teaching  strategies  for middle  and  high-school educators.  Using a “CSI approach” to history, Dr. Williams’ six strategies tap into students’ natural curiosity and investigative instincts.  Students become  detectives  of  the past as they ghost-hunt in their neighborhoods, solve  historical  crimes,  prepare  arguments  for famous court cases, and more.  Dr. Williams is one of our nations premier history educators and the author  of  Teaching  U.S.  History  Beyond the Textbook: Six Investigative
Strategies   for   Grades   5-12.
