I took a new job in a small district where the teachers are left largely to their own devices. The previous (retiring) teaching taught the decades of the 20th century, but I pointed out that the topic didn't align with the state standards. We have no existing curriculum or textbook. I was thinking possibly citizenship, government, the constitution. The 6-7-8 teacher claims she has dominion over geography, ancient civilization, and American History through reconstruction (and the high school takes it from there). Anyone have other suggestions? Suggestion for topics or a uniting theme? Sources of units?
