Great lessons. Use primary source materials. Some are long and may need modified.
Lessons are usually interesting; draw on primary source and add information about the subject beyond the textbook. Some articles could be discussed as a class, if warranted, and then progress to the activity. Some of the lessons are long (4 days) so you could not use them all the time; but some of them are worth the time for providing the Big Picture.Continue reading

Fantastic Planning & Teaching Tool
As a teaching and planning tool, EDSITEment is a fantastic resource, especially for humanities teachers. The site is clean and easy to navigate, which I always tend to mention in a recommendation. Furthermore, and this is the largest reason I highly recommend it, is that the lesson plans are accessible and thorough. Often, teachers find they can't access a lesson because they have join or pay a monthly fee; where as of now, EDSITEment is free. Secondly, in online research for lesson planning, a teacher often finds old, short, or irrelevant lesson plans. I recommend this one because the lessons are actually thorough in giving background information, visual accompaniments, thoughtful activities/questions, and resources beyond. Also, it is very easy for teachers, in the humanities, to use the lessons for cross disciplinary courses or classes, as EDSITEment provides information to do so. For students, as I noted above, this is not as an exciting tool, yet. However, there is a separate tab for "Student Resources" that students may use for further learning. As with any educational website, it would really depend on the student to utilize it for supplemental learning. Their "Launchpad" series though, in different areas for student resources, is just as thorough and researched in information. If a student were to use it, they would find much to supplement and test his or her comprehension. I would recommend it for advanced learners, on their own, because I anticipate many other learns becoming intimated and overwhelmed by the information on their own.Continue reading

This is a comprehensive website of lesson plans and resources.
This website is not a teaching tool. It is a site to find lessons for the teacher to teach. The lessons are in depth and provide the teacher with plenty of specifics in delivering the lesson. I like how there are many resources included to go with the lessons so you do not have to generate your own. This website is not for students. It is a resource for teachers. This website does not include all subjects. It is only for the humanities.Continue reading
