In a special course about the Russian Revolution for middle school, high school, and community college instructors, participants attended pedagogical sessions that connected film, exhibits, and lectures with their teaching. Specifically, participants selected sources from the lectures and archival visits and created their own formative assessments, which are activities teachers use to prompt student thinking and adjust instruction so as to maximize learning. The course is one of many professional development offerings for local teachers developed by Stanford Global Studies and the Center to Support Excellence in Teaching (CSET), with partial funding from the U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant.
