The DNA of Social Studies

I would like to share a few things from the workshop which I am conducting these days at Educational Resource Development Centre (ERDC), Karachi. It is called Breaking the Code: the DNA of Social Studies.

The concept is that just as DNA is a basic code encompassing the entire range of development the organism may potentially achieve, so there are a few basic truths about an area of study which yield an overall plan into which new developments may easily fit as the learner goes along.

The workshop consists of seven sessions:
  1. Ancient Civilizations
  2. Modern History
  3. Iqbal
  4. An Overview of Geography
  5. Civics: a Mind Map for Pakistani Learners
  6. Pakistan: understanding the idea and the reality
  7. Recap and Conclusions
A shorter version conducted for teachers last month became quite popular, so this is a longer version for students as well as teachers. Personally, for me, its a nice experience to be addressing "house full" sessions once again (the current round has 35 participants, which is the maximum capacity of the venue).
