Getting Started: US History
The New Visions Social Studies Curriculum is a full scope and sequence for the 9th and 10th grade Global History and Geography course and the 11th grade United States History and Government course as set out by the New York State K-12 Social Studies Framework. Through the investigation and analysis of primary and secondary sources, students have the opportunity to think critically, and to read, write, and speak like historians, while simultaneously honing the literacy and critical thinking skills necessary for both the New York State Regents exams and post-secondary coursework.
Because of the flexibility of the open source Google Apps for Education platform, we host most of our materials in Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets. We encourage teachers to make copies and adapt documents for their students’ needs and the contexts in which they teach. For additional help on how to make a copy of a google doc, please watch this video.
