Check this out! This resource can be taught alone or as an integrated theme across subjects!. As you know, integration leads to greater student engagement, deeper understanding, and higher-order thinking skills for our students. However, coordinating integration across multiple subject areas can be quite an undertaking. That’s where Spiral Studies comes in. We’re a group of TpT teacher-authors and we’ve combined our expertise to make absolutely turn-key integrated mini-units for you and/or your team. If you’d like to turn this lesson into an integrated unit we’d suggest working with your team (or independently if you teach multiple subject areas) and checking out the Spiral Studies Women’s History materials in each of our stores.
Where can I get the other subject area lessons to go with this?
