Please note that although this set was created for Louisiana teachers, the resources are all about the U.S. Constitution and government and can be used by teachers in any state. The standards addressed are:
The recent shifts in social studies require students to use a set of sources and what they have learned in social studies to answer questions that look nothing like “traditional” elementary social studies tests. The rigor has increased, and students are expected to analyze sources, make inferences based on prior knowledge, and explain their reasoning.
The resources included in this set were designed to work with what you already have, while focusing on key themes and standards. Through the DBQs, students will analyze sources, debate, and write essays similar to those on the LEAP. The slideshows and interactive notebook pages provide explicit instruction, which is also critical for learning. Response journal prompts allow students to internalize what they have learned and to express their understanding in writing. Quizzes and assessments are aligned to the LEAP, and standards are available at the beginning of the documents.
Also included in this set is a suggested pacing guide. Directions for using each of the resources are included – sometimes with pictures! Management, engagement, and organization tips are sprinkled throughout the resources as well. There is a lot of information here, so be sure to read through everything ahead of time.
