I have all kinds of free stuff for you today.
The American heritage Education Foundation has K-12 lesson plans on CD-Rom available for free($150 value). I checked it out & ordered a few weeks ago & just got my CD in the mail this week. Go to their site & request your own CD.
America’s Heritage: An Adventure in Liberty is a tested lesson plan resource and supplement for Kindergarten-12th grade teachers of social studies, U. S. history, U. S. government, political science, economics, geography, speech, and/or related subjects. Written by fellow teachers, the resource consists of age-appropriate and modifiable lesson plans grouped into three separate books according to level: elementary, middle, and high school. Each elementary school lesson plan correlates practically with the nationally applicable Core Knowledge Skills (grades K-6) (national edition) and/or Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) objectives (Texas edition). Each middle and high school lesson plan correlates with the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) standards (national edition), TEKS objectives, and/or Project CLEAR objectives (Texas edition). All lessons emphasize one or more themes of freedom, unity, progress, and responsibility.
