Every unit also concludes with online review games and digital assessments using Google Forms. These are both easy to assign and can be automatically scored for seamless instant grading.
Distance Learning Plans
Every unit now begins with a "Distance Learning Hub" prior to the daily lesson plans. Here, you will find all the best activities for online learning in one place.
No matter if you are using Google Classroom, Canvas, Schoology, or Edmodo, these digital resources are perfect for engaging your students while they're learning at home. These include:
- Online readings for every unit
- Google digital learning pages
- Flipped Classroom videos
- Google Forms assessments
If you'll be teaching in a hybrid format, just mix these in with the daily lessons and you'll have the best resources for each forma available to you.
The Flipped Classroom strategy was originally designed to save class time for more interactive activities. These video lessons are perfect for use with Distance Learning and explain the important concepts you need to cover just like you would in class.
Every unit in Civics, World, and US History includes fully-narrated video lessons. Each video is about 20 minutes, can be imported into Google Classroom or other Learning Management Systems, and includes guided notes for students to complete as they watch the lesson.
Joining Students of History also gives you access to our new mobile app.
