I’ll be teaching Government and Economics to ELLs for the first time this coming school year.
Yesterday, I shared some online tools I was considering using for economics.
Here are the ones I’ll considering using for Government – let me know what you think and what I’m missing:
You are definitely missing Nearpod! Amazing customizable and interactive lessons. FREE basic accounts. Immersive reader is built in.

If you are teaching English Language Learners about American government, @jaredpeet has generously made many of the resources he created and uses public for all to use! It’s quite a gift! https://t.co/4dgr7BBXUV

A company called Certell has released a series of online Social Studies classes that are available for free to teachers and to students. The progam is called Poptential. I’m considering trying it out a little in my ELL Government class sometime this year. If I was teaching U.S. History, I might also consider using it as a supplement in that class.
