You see, I have great respect for Stephen Lazar. He clearly cares about America's youth-and America. And even though I've never had the pleasure of seeing him teach, I'm certain he knows his stuff: Lazar is a National Board-certified social studies teacher at Harvest Collegiate High School in New York City.
In a blog post last week, he discussed the Common Core State Standards and New York's draft grades 9-12 Social Studies Framework, I was nodding in agreement for most of it.
...
I can't blame Lazar for not knowing this research. Our colleges of education and professional development workshops typically do not teach it; and Lazar doesn't have an easy job like mine in which he can decide to dig into a topic and stay focused until a body of evidence starts to show itself. There is a cacophony of conflicting voices out there-Daniel Willingham, a psychology professor at the University of Virginia, wrote a whole book on how hard it is for educators to know when to trust the "experts."
Understanding that I truly want Lazar to succeed, please allow me a friendly critique of his recommendations.
Regarding any new social studies framework, Lazar writes:
...
Research shows that in the hands of a master teacher-which I believe Lazar to be-inquiry approaches can be effective.
...
In his blog post, Lazar writes that he wants "to spark an effective resistance to the 'laundry list approach' to social studies standards.
