Education: K-12 Teaching Materials


The TOP teaching materials support social studies curriculum topics, provide the teacher with ready-to-use lesson plans, and provide students with practice related to social studies skills in the context of an intercultural approach. They model effective teaching strategies as well as social studies content and process skills.

The instructional strategy guides are designed such that the teacher may either integrate individual lessons or use them as a complete stand-alone unit. Social Studies and Common Core alignment guidelines are provided to assist with appropriate curriculum integration. The lessons should be modified by teachers to meet the needs, interests, and performance levels of students in their classrooms. Lessons range from activities designed for individual students to activities requiring student group collaboration.
