Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
Actively involving students in the events, issues, people, and decisions of American history, these classroom-tested activities encourage critical thinking about the U.S. through each decade of the 20th century.
Crossword puzzles, creative news and telegram writing exercises, data analysis, maps, chronology logic exercises, and glossaries of various events and terms enable students to go beyond passive memorization and draw conclusions about the past. For example, one activity in the 1960s unit asks them to weigh the pros and cons of threatening war to force Russian missiles out of Cuba.
