Truman Library - Social Studies web sites - 1 views

  • The National Assessment of Educational Progress has a website where released U.S. History items may be found

      Some items on this site might not be entirely up to date. It appears to me that this link is no longer active.
  • A website on the flags of the world

      Other websites, like this one, seem to be a little bit suspect. Use discretion.

    Say what you will about Harry Truman, but his library website has a vast cache of social studies links and resources, organized by topic. Some of the items go beyond social studies and into the realm of homework help and other teaching strategies. You may need to a dig a little bit to find exactly what you are looking for, but you can probably somehow get to it from here.

NationsIllustrated.com - The World in Pictures - 5 views

      This site is a great way to display areas of the world that are being discussed.  It is not very well cited, but it does provide options to find photographs at National Geographic as well.

      I would use this during a geography lesson, by showing them a picture of a recognizable landmark.  We would figure out what it was, where it was, and then find the absolute location, all part of DC 7th Grade Standards.

      This site most likely does not rate very high by Berkeley standards.  That being said, I think it is a great option to be able to show kids exactly what you are talking about on the SMART board.

    The ability to show students images of countries, places, cities, and landscapes.  An awesome way to show students the world without leaving the classroom.

Kids.gov - Social Studies - Maps /Geography (Grades 6 - 8) - 3 views

      Great general resource for teachers who are looking for options to enhance their geography classes.  Online resources at reliable government websites to help augment lessons and skills.

      I would use this site as a resource for my students to do research for themselves.  I would also use some of the sites as alternate assignments for students.

      This site is an awesome resource for social studies teachers looking for internet resources to give their kids.  It is both credible and provides general enough resources that allow them to use it for all lessons.

Worldmapper: The world as you've never seen it before - 1 views

    • kyleassad
       
      Data is sourced from the United Nations: the UNDP, Conference on Trade and Development Trade Tables, and Angus Maddison's World Economy: Historical Statistics.  At first glance, the data from which the maps are created is credible because it is from the UN with the exception of the maps sources from Angus Maddison.  The website is also a product of Sheffield University in the United Kingdom, which lends credibility.

      The maps are divided into categories, and provide a great visual aid when talking about how different countries, regions, and continents utilize resources, have different birth and death rates, and other factors based on geography that can help to be visualized.
    • kyleassad
       
      This website is very credible, especially based on the standards from the UC Berkeley website.  They cite their sources on their "Data" page, include credits to those who helped them, and include the sources that assisted in the formation of the maps.  They include contacts, who created the web page, and statistics on how they update errors, etc.

      Overall, not only is this website interesting to me because I am a map nerd, but I think this would be very useful in geography, economics, and other social studies classes.
