I have been teaching 8th grade US History for 16 years. I take my class very serious and when I can't find a resource that I like, I make it for my own use to fit the state standards in Tennessee.
I use primary sources in every lesson that I teach. I prefer for the students to discover history on their own with guidance from me as needed. I incorporate writing and the use of textual evidence in writing as much as possible.
