This unit was written with the TN standards in mind (5.1-5.74) which are also aligned to the Common Core standards. It covers all of the 74 standards as well as the 17 required & suggested primary sources.
Over 105 pages of Interactive Notes (with answer keys, writing tasks, & enrichment activities)
Over 20 Primary sources with summaries - required ones, suggested ones, & additional ones aligned to standards
7 Study Guides & 15 quizzes/tests (all with answer keys & grading suggestions)
You can use your district's Social Studies materials with this unit or have your students conduct online research. I wrote these based on my district's materials (page numbers included):
USA Studies Weekly newspapers
Houghton-Mifflin SS Textbook: TN
Gibbs TN Through Time: The Later Years Textbook
This is a PDF (I was unable to get create a word document because the file is so large). If you prefer an editable version, the 4 separate units are available in my store:
Industrial America/Westward Expansion
World War I to World War II
Thanks so much! I think you will find this very useful in covering our new standards!
