We published the Language Arts curriculum available from the Library of Congress a year or so ago and this time I have been perusing the available United States History material.
Having recently learned my essential American History for my citizenship exam I am left wishing I had found this material earlier. I learned the important dates and names parrot-fashion, to respond to the oral exam during my final interview, but never really understood what it all truly meant and how it fit together in the big picture and English is my first language!
In reading the Teachers’ Notes for The Constitution I learned more in 10 minutes than the weeks of reciting rote answers. Whether you teach our young K-12 students or hold classes for citizenship these materials from the LoC are high quality and well thought out, and did I say FREE?
The Constitution, The Dust Bowl, The Harlem Renaissance, Immigration and Symbols of the United States have a student discovery set that can be downloaded to the student’s iPad.
