Social Studies & Civics Resources
America in Class offers standards-aligned history and literature lessons. Lesson topics include major events, movements, and themes from specific time periods in American history. In addition to the lessons, teachers can access other primary and secondary sources for class discussion. The materials are adaptable, but are more appropriate for GED and Adult Diploma students.
This comprehensive website has multiple lesson plans and assessments that cover a wide range of social studies topics, including U.S. History. The "Reading Like a Historian" curriculum engages students in historical inquiry, while the "Beyond the Bubble" history assessments measure students' historical thinking skills. The "Civic Online Reasoning" activities assess students’ ability to critically evaluate online content.
