C-SPAN Classroom offers a lot of excellent resources for U.S. Government and History teachers. In the past I’ve featured their interactive timeline of Supreme Court rulings and their classroom deliberations lessons.
C-SPAN Classroom Lesson Plans section has been re-organized and new materials have been added for the new school year. When you log into the new section (C-SPAN Classroom accounts are required for access, they’re free) you will notice that the lesson plans are organized into sixteen thematic sections. Some of the thematic sections are Constitution, Political Parties, Comparative Government, and Economics. Within each section you will find detailed lesson plan frameworks that include video clips, vocabulary lists, and assignment suggestions. Each section also includes PDFs to print and distribute to students.
If you’re looking for some new lessons on government and history to try this year, you’ll be pleased with the updated C-SPAN Classroom Lesson Plans.
