    With these highly scaffolded resources, middle schoolers CAN read primary sources in US History! This super-discounted bundle includes many of my most popular resources. Files include:

    • Primary sources that align with most US History curricula (age of exploration - westward expansion)
    • Glossaries & word banks for vocabulary development
    • Printable worksheets for student engagement
    • Quizzes & exit tickets to check for understanding
    • Accompanying PowerPoint presentations

    This bundle is perfect for middle school social studies teachers who want to increase the rigor of units and supplement textbook reading by sprinkling in accessible primary sources. It is also useful for 9th or 10th grade social studies.

    Topics include:

    • Introduction to primary source: What are primary & secondary sources?
    • Christopher Columbus's oppression of indigenous Americans (age of exploration)
    • Colonist & Native American interaction (early colonial period)
    • Puritans (early colonial period)
    • Lincoln & slavery (Civil War)
    • Reconstruction
    • Fugitive Slave Law
    • The Chinese Exclusion Act (westward expansion)

    I have successfully used these products with middle schoolers whose reading levels range from 3rd grade - 12th grade level. The included scaffolding (worksheets, glossaries) are great for students with IEPs or for ELLs.

    As I continue to upload my primary source resources, I will add them to this bundle meaning you get all future additions for FREE once you've purchased the bundle!

    Some primary sources in this bundle have been modified to make them accessible to middle grade readers. Why use modified primary sources? For equity and access! Please read more here if you're interested: https://teachinghistory.org/teaching-materials/teaching-guides/23560
