This product consists of three topics of my "Basic Proficiency" 9th grade curriculum. It is derived from the New York State Social Studies Frameworks. It includes a listing of each task I assign in every topic for these three topics. "Basic Proficiency" is a reduced-difficulty unit designed for students who struggle with the standard curriculum. It delivers just enough information to pass and little more. It is delivered in class the same as the standard. Some tasks, being easier, are worth a lower maximum score.
These units are designed to work along side the regular curriculum, the outline of which you may download for free in its entirety here at TeachersPayTeachers.
I am posting these three unit outlines for free in order to entice interested parties into purchasing the materials I will be posting to deliver this course. I am approaching retirement and I would like to make available ideas on methodology and materials using which I have had some success.
The ZIP file has an outline of three units of study (I call them "topics") for Global Studies 9 at a "basic proficiency" level.. There is also a file explaining how each task is done and there are research papers providing the supporting documentation to the methodology and examinations of progress I have done over the years. I have differentiated in this way since 2007.
The free materials are also intended to spread the word about my site TeachersWebHost.com. This web site is a complete content management system. It integrates perfectly with Google Classroom. It has many test generators and apps for managing a classroom.
