Social Studies & Civics Resources
SERP’s Social Studies Generation is comprised of three units, including "Ancient Civilizations of Egypt, Greece and Rome" and "Experiences of Two Children in War Torn Sudan." Written for the middle school level, the lessons provide opportunities for students to read, write, discuss, and build arguments. Brief activities for ELA, math and science are also included in each unit.
This comprehensive website has multiple lesson plans and assessments that cover a wide range of social studies topics, including World 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.
