SS Curriculum Guides - 22 views

  •  
    These are a set of out-of-print guides made by the NYC Board of Education in 1993-1994. They are full of primary sources, short text selections and activities which many teachers have found very useful. Although designed for 7th and 8th grade they can be modified for high school and elementary school. Many teachers have used these over the last 17 years to help them develop their lessons. They are large files so they will take a few minutes to open. Note that both sets follow the same format but the 8th grade guides were done with a modern text style and therefore "looks" much better.

Negotiate for Peace Project - 9 views

  •  
    On September 11, 1776, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Edward Rutledge were sent by the Continental Congress to met with Admiral Howe at the Conference House in Staten Island, New York. Their mission was to avoid a war. After only three hours the meeting ended. They failed!
    What could have happened that day? That's what our project is all about. The goal of this project is for classes to negotiate ... via email ... and try to come up with a treaty that could have avoided the American Revolution!
    This project can also be adapted for any other war!
