I have taught in California for the last 6 years in both private and public schools. Before this I taught in both Japan and the United Kingdom. I am currently updating several of my older units to reflect the shift towards common core. Please review the preview sheets or email me for more details.
I mix the best of the old with the best of the new using the latest technology including a vast array of online resources to help connect students to world and U.S. history. My website has many materials that you and your students can use free of charge including links to YouTube video playlists and a plethora of historical paper models. My units are designed to develop analytical and critical thinking skills whilst engaging students with audio-visual resources in a seamless manner that allows you to teach rather than waste precious class time setting up multiple technologies and handing out multiple worksheets. If you do purchase any of my units I would highly recommend you acquire an iPad along with an app called splashtop whiteboard. This will allow you (or your students) annotate and control presentations from anywhere in your room.

For many teachers, especially those entering the profession, you will find that a huge amount of your precious free time is spent creating or searching for resources. Purchasing any of my units will save you tens or even hundreds of hours of work leaving you free to focus on keeping yourself healthy, happy, and able to meet the myriad challenges of the teaching profession.
