About Instructomania with Mr. & Mrs. P:
US History includes content-rich, primary source-driven United States history lessons and activities. Students use critical thinking, in our skill-based lessons that have students analyze historical documents, charts, and primary resources. Our U.S. History units are also key concept based. Students analyze the growth and challenges faced by the United States through the use of the key concepts of federalism, republicanism government, diversity, territorial expansion, rights and liberties, labor systems, and economy. A common theme throughout our lessons is that students support claims with evidence from secondary and primary source text.
