I teach US History using an Interactive Notebook framework, with mini-lessons presenting content followed by activities in which students analyze or otherwise engage with that content. This is a Power Point presentation covering the content of SSUSH2. This pairs perfectly with both the Interactive Notebook Activities and the Cloze notes available for SSUSH2.
For the 2014-15 administration of the Georgia Milestones Assessment, my scores were as follows: 74.2% Developing or higher, compared to 73% for Georgia, and 41.2 Proficient or higher, compared to 39% for Georgia. I teach in a Title I school and do not have textbooks. Please see "Georgia Milestones US History Domain 1 SSUSH2 Interactive Notebook Activities and "Georgia Milestones US History Domain 1 Cloze notes," as well.
