Imagine this… You are on Jeopardy, you have just choosen the catagory, “Instruction.”
Alex Trebek reads the answer:
“Looking at primary sources documenting the history of thought, seeing how the world is interconnected, understanding interactions between people, analyzing cultural and intellectual diffusion…”
You buzz in… “What are the facets of a social studies curriculum?”
Alex says, “Correct!, we also would have accepted What is social media’s entire reason for existence!”
If Social Media was ever taught as a class I think it should be Social Studies class! 🙂 Just Saying…
There are more similarities than just the word “social” in the title!
