My U.S. History Class Blog Has Now Been (Almost) Completely Updated

ushistoryblog

I’ve spent this weekend, and the entire school year, updating my various class blogs. So far, I’ve shared about my ones for World History and for IB Theory of Knowledge.

I’ve now almost completed updated my U.S. History Class Blog for English Language Learners. It follows the chapter sequence found in Steck-Vaughn’s “America’s Story” textbook, but certainly the sequence would be useful for any U.S. History class.

I still have to add a post or two covering events from the last few years but, other than that, I think it’s fairly complete.

You’ll also find a lot of student-handouts that you can download, particularly in the first two-thirds of the chapters. Feel free to use them in your own classes, but please don’t distribute them commercially.
