Good evening, friends. You are likely aware of our recent re-launch of the first three courses in our The Civics Classroom series.
Well, we just couldn't wait until July 1st, so are excited to announce that A Constitutional Classroom is now open! This fourth course in the series, developed in collaboration with Bay District Schools, explores the underlying ideas of the US Constitution and is 'hosted' by Dr. Charles Flanagan of the National Archives! You can find
A Constitutional Classroom will provide teachers with an understanding of:
- Major ideas in the U.S. Constitution,
- How to apply disciplinary literacy skills, and
- Preparing for instruction to make content accessible for all learners.
As the salesman on TV once said, but wait, that's not all!
We have also completed and are now launching the first course in what we hope will be a strong and long series for high school US history! The High School US History: The Civil War and Reconstruction Era is, like A Constitutional Classroom, hosted by our friend Dr. Charles Flanagan from the National Archives. This course was developed in collaboration with Bay District Schools, and we are grateful for their support.
The High School US History: Civil War and Reconstruction course will provide teachers with pedagogy, content, and resources for:
- the major ideas of the cause, course, and consequences of the Civil War and Reconstruction Era
- primary sources and disciplinary literacy
- strategies and structures for accessible learning
But what about you folks in high school US Government? We have a new course for you as well!
The High School Government Classroom: Building Critical Knowledge course will provide teachers with pedagogy, content, and resources for:
- lesson planning and preparation in social studies
- the principles of American democracy
- the US Constitution
- Founding Documents
- Landmark Cases
For Florida teachers, this course is intended to help you prepare students for the new Civic Literacy Assessment. However, it also provides a basic foundation in US government content, pedagogy, and resources and aligns with the newHigh School US Government modules on Civics360! (And there will be a post on the launch of that new resource later!).
We hope that you find these new courses beneficial!
