Lesson Plans by Curriculum Standards

In 2010, the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and Council of Chief State School Officers published the Common Core State Standards. Three years later, the National Council for the Social Studies published the College, Career & Civic Life Framework for Social Studies State Standards (C3). Teaching with Historic Places, with over 20 years of success, is more than relevant under the new standards. It anticipated them. The lesson plan format was designed by education specialists and historians to support the inquiry method of learning, making Teaching with Historic Places a perfect fit for teachers looking for ways to meet the Common Core state standards and social studies standards informed by the C3 Framework.

Teaching with Historic Places lessons are free-to-use by teachers and students online, printed-out, or projected. They are easily accessible to anyone with a computer and internet connection, no registration necessary.
