Social History for Every Classroom (SHEC) provides an extensive database of primary resources, historical collections, and teaching activities for middle and high school students. Use the tabs at the top of the home page to find and select the content sorted by themes, teaching activities, and more. Teaching activities include lessons using active viewing skills, political cartoons, and literature in the history classroom. Use the Themes tab to find many lesson ideas based upon broader American History topics.

tag(s): 1600s (17), 1700s (34), 1800s (61), 1900s (55), american revolution (74), civil rights (168), comics and cartoons (46), great depression (28), immigrants (29), immigration (58), industrial revolution (21), politics (101), racism (71), railroads (12), slavery (61), underground railroad (10), world war 1 (63), world war 2 (136)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save this site to find lesson ideas and teaching activities to use in any American History Class. Include the ideas found on SHEC to apply to other history lesson topics. For example, one activity looks at slave life using primary source images and short text. As part of this activity, students create found poems using the keywords found in the documents. Adapt this strategy to learning about the American Revolution, World Wars, or any other significant events. Using lesson ideas and information on SHEC, engage students to start a new learning unit using a polling tool to create a word cloud. Answer Garden, reviewed here, is a free tool that creates word clouds based on students' short answer responses to an initial question. Ideas might include, "What words come to mind when you think about slave life?" or "What do you think life was like for the first colonists arriving from England?" Enhance student learning using Blendspace, reviewed here, to create interactive lessons that include videos, quizzes, and learning activities. Extend learning by asking students to demonstrate learning using a multimedia tool such as Adobe Creative Cloud Express for Education, reviewed here. Offer students options to "show what they know" by creating a website, video, or graphic images that share their understanding of the content.

Find an extensive list of free resources for developing learning about global issues from Oxfam's collection for education. These resources aim to give students the materials and activities to think critically and act responsibly. In this collection, you'll find activities, lesson plans, quizzes, PowerPoint presentations, and more. Topics explore high-interest issues for learners ages 7 to 14. Examples of a few cases are Children's Rights, Sustainable Clothing, Climate Change/Emergency/Challenge, Where Food Comes From, and much more. The units are downloadable in PDF format and include plans for different age groups, a teacher overview, related links, a detailed resource outline, and PowerPoints (where applicable).

tag(s): civil rights (168), climate change (80), environment (220), immigration (58), sustainability (37), women (106)

In the Classroom

These units are very comprehensive! Choose a unit to complete as a class using your interactive whiteboard or projector to show students all activities, links, and other resources. Then go through some titles and descriptions of several units and ask the class which ones they would be interested in exploring. You may want to use a tool such as Padlet, reviewed here, to keep this organized and eventually form student groups. Students interested in the same topic can form small groups to explore their topics. For younger students, structure this in a very organized way in that all students will look at the links for their unit on a certain day and divide them up with their group to explore and share with other group members after a given time. For older students you could modify their technology use using a tool like Workona, reviewed here, to keep student groups organized and moving forward in their research. At the end of the research, enhance student learning by having student groups share with the class what they learned using a multimedia tool like Genially, reviewed here. With Genially, students can choose what type of presentation they want to use (interactive poster, infographic, videos, games, etc.).

Bring Colonial America to your class with the reviewed resources shared in this section. The colonial history of the United States covers the period of time from 1607 to 1776, when the thirteen colonies joined together to declare their independence. Therefore, the term Colonial America also refers to the thirteen colonies located on what is now the eastern coast of the United States. People came to the New World for many different reasons: religious freedom, commerce, and starting new lives after serving time in jail. Education was important to the colonies, and the economy was based most often on farming and trade.

This series of twelve lessons provides resources for teaching an understanding of human rights issues and discovering how to take action toward human rights issues in students' communities. It isn't necessary to teach all lessons in the order given; however, it provides a framework for instruction that begins with learning about empathy, discrimination, and prejudice and guides students toward self-reflection. Each lesson includes teacher notes, supplementary materials such as videos, student worksheets, and PowerPoint slides. The videos reside on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable.

tag(s): civil rights (168), empathy (27), identity (26), social and emotional learning (61)

In the Classroom

Include these lessons among your resources when teaching Citizenship, as part of English lessons, or within your Personal Social Health and Economic Education (PHSEE) Standards. Many lessons provide excellent resources for use by school counselors to provide support in social and emotional learning. If time is limited, divide students into groups that participate in different lessons then share their learning with peers. If dividing up lessons, consider having all students complete the final two lessons that focus on personal attitudes and discussions of equality within local communities. Engage students by beginning lessons with a simple group response tool such as Answer Garden, reviewed here. Provide a prompt in Answer Garden and ask students to respond; Answer Garden creates a word cloud based on the answers. Enhance student learning using edpuzzle, reviewed here, when watching videos. Add comments, questions, and additional information within the videos to guide students toward a deeper understanding of the content. As a final extension activity, ask students to prepare a plan for their community that focuses on improving human rights locally. Use Adobe Creative Cloud Express for Education, reviewed here, to prepare a video or website to share with local officials.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session is from November 2021. You can register and immediately view the archive of the session.

Prepare your students to use today's digital tools to help solve tomorrow's problems. Pattern recognition, abstraction, algorithmic thinking, and decomposition are core thinking skills that can be applied to any subject. Learn how to integrate these components into any content area using Microsoft MakeCode projects and Hacking STEM lessons--hands-on activities that engage students immediately. As a result of this session, teachers will: 1. Review the fundamentals of computational thinking and how they can be applied across K-12 disciplines; 2. Explore MakeCode and Hacking STEM, two resources that promote computational thinking; and 3. Plan for the use of computational thinking in the classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

tag(s): coding (76), computational thinking (35), Microsoft (73), professional development (309)

In the Classroom

The archive of this teacher-friendly, hands-on webinar will empower and inspire you to use learning technology in the classroom and for professional productivity. As appropriate, specific classroom examples and ideas have been shared. View the session with a few of your teaching colleagues to find and share new ideas.
