History Project Support for English Learners

Teachers, are you looking for model lessons to integrate History disciplinary skills and content, Common Core, and English Learner support? The California History-Social Science Project has developed three model lessons to support teachers as they implement state standards. Each lesson contains a background introduction for educators; a question of historical significance that guides students’ investigation into the material; standards alignment for the state’s content, Common Core, and ELD guidelines; a bibliography of primary and secondary sources; procedures to guide educators’ instruction; student handouts including all secondary and primary sources, literacy activities to provide all students access to the documents, primary source analysis supports, opportunities for discussion, and writing activities in which students make claims of historical significance.

The lesson topics are:
The Road to Revolution (5th grade)
Western Expansion (8th grade)
Tyranny and the Rule of Law (10th grade)
