Frequently Asked Questions - Students of History

Not sure yet about signing up? Hopefully the questions and answers below will help answer any that you have. 


 What's the difference between this site and TpT? 

Thanks for checking out both! On my Teachers Pay Teachers page, I have unit bundles and curriculum available for immediate digital download. Those include the resource files only. So, after purchasing, you download a zip folder of every PowerPoint, interactive notebook, worksheet, resource, etc. The benefits to this is that you get everything downloaded at once, all organized into unit folders, which you can keep on your computer or a USB. You also can download any & all updates to them in the future. 

Here on this site, you get access to all these same resources, but also individual lesson plans on how to use each one. Plus, there's links to videos and online resources that can't really be placed into a desktop folder. Each resource is downloaded individually as needed, however, not all at once. As long as you maintain your membership, you get access to everything! Should you cancel, you keep only files you downloaded, but will lose log-in access to the lessons and links. Hope that makes sense :) 


 What happens after I register? 

After entering your info, you will receive a log-in and password for the site.  You’ll then gain access to the Dashboard where you can start going through all your new resources! You'll immediately gain access to every unit in the curriculum.


  Do you accept school purchase orders? 

Yes! I can definitely accept school POs.  If you are interested in getting a quote for a school PO, please email me ([email protected]) with 1) which curriculum you are interested in 2) how long you like the subscription for (please note that there is a 6-month subscription minimum for POs), and 3) how many teachers will need accounts. I'll get back to you quickly with a Quote that you can use to get a PO approved. I can provide a W9 form as well if you need that for us to become an approved vendor. 


  Are there discounts for multiple subscriptions? 

Yes! After you sign up for one curriculum, go to the Course page for it and on the right-hand side you will see a link and green button for "Discounted Add-On Subscriptions". Each additional curriculum you add is only $20/month! 


   Are there refunds?

Unfortunately, due to the digital nature of these resources there are no refunds. Please check out my reviews on Facebook, look at all of my resources on TpT, go through the feedback, and look at previews of various files. I have over 30,000 perfect ratings for social studies resources! 

These Complete Curriculum packages include ALL of my favorite activities across engaging, in-depth units. I am positive that you'll find many resources that will benefit your classes. 


   How will I be charged?

If you choose the subscription, your credit card will be charged the monthly rate when you sign up and then on that same date each month while you have the curriculum package. That monthly charge gets you the full access to all these great lesson plans as long as you’re a member!  

If you select the 1-time charge, you will be charged that full amount after hitting submit. These give you access for 365 days and are not auto-renewed. After 365 days, your account will close. 


    How can I change my payment method? 

New credit card? No problem! To change your payment method, click on the head logo/avatar on the top right of the screen when you are logged in. Then Click on settings. Next click on "Credit Card Info" on the top right of the screen. You can change your card info here.


  Can I cancel my membership?

Yes, of course. I’ll hate to see you go, but I understand that you might be assigned a new prep or just decide that you don’t need these resources anymore.

To cancel, click on the head logo/avatar on the top right of the screen when you are logged in. Then Click on settings. On the top right of the screen you'll see "Credit Card Info" - click there. Then click the "Cancel" button. 


   What  grade level are the resources appropriate for? 

These resources work best for students in grades 7-10. Students can, of course, vary quite a bit. However, with a little modification they can go a grade or so up or down as well. 


  What schedule are the daily lessons based on?

These daily lessons are structured on a block schedule that meets every other day. So, a 7-day unit actually covers 14 school days. However, these can be easily modified to spread each lesson plan over 2 days if you teach in a school that has class every day for 45 minutes (or a similar schedule). You can download FREE pacing guides that show every lesson in each curriculum here: 


  What if I have questions about a resource?

I’m happy to help with any resource included in the curriculum! Please don’t hesitate to reach out through TwitterFacebook, or Instagram. I definitely understand that some resources might pose questions or there could be a change you’d like to see. I can also be reached through email at [email protected]

I want to make sure all my resources are the best they can be, so please don't hesitate to reach out!


Hope that answers any of your pressing questions! If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
