This product is a treasure... a Pacing Guide for 8th grade History teachers, crafted by me, with CA Standards included! (Some school districts would call this pacing guide a "scope and sequence.")
Impress your principals, parents, and History Department with a carefully crafted, 38-week Pacing Guide.
If you're a new teacher, this product is a must! I created this when I was a new teacher and instantly impressed my administrators. In fact, this Pacing Guide has been adopted by various 8th grade History teachers in my school district!
When your new school year begins in the Fall, simply tweak a couple dates in the Pacing Guide to match your school district's schedule, and that's it!
At your first Department meeting, bust this out and show your colleagues how organized you are.
This Pacing Guide lays out a week-by-week map to teaching key content from the Jamestown settlement to World War I. It works perfectly for all California 8th grade history teachers, but would work for plenty of other teachers in other states.
This Pacing Guide uses California Standards (I assume that it could be easily adapted to fit the Standards of other states). I strongly suggest that you use this guide, along with the Common Core literacy/reading standards, when you begin to create your curriculum.
