Civic Foundations of the US Government File
Interactive Notebook Unit
This Interactive Notebook file is filled with hook activities, processing activities, and EOC practice items for ALL four standards listed above. There are 35 pages filled with standard based learning activities for each of the FOUR standard topics listed above. Over the years with being Tech Leader for our school, along with Social Studies Department Head, Coach, Interactive Notebook Leader, and Civics teacher... I have become very talented in taking benchmarks, getting to the root of what is tested on within that benchmark and making lessons. Through the Universal Design Model and AVID, I have created great lessons, activities, DBQs, and practice EOC items that will make your life so much easier this school year.
