    I teach tenth and eleventh grade World and U.S. History. Any suggestions of books, lesson plan helps, or other resources?

    For example, I recently ordered Flocabulary. I've listened to some of the songs before and I think it could be really helpful.

    I'm hoping to find some things that I could purchase online.

    Thanks!

    teachinghistory.org is a good starting place for U.S. history. It has tons of links to other sites in addition to resources on the site.

    quite possibly the most helpful website I have EVER used. This site was kept me alive the first years I taught AP Euro and APUSH

    A disclaimer though: her powerpoints are LOOONG. Also, her site really doesn't have many "hands on activities". I'd suggest looking into mrroughton.com for hands on activities and projects. He teaches Middle School, but you can easily adapt them to High School. Now for simulations, that's a bit more difficult. I'd suggest either buying books or asking on here for suggestions for certain topics. I have a few which are good for Fedualism, the Treaty of Versailles, and theres a few more which aren't coming to me right now. If you need specific resources for topics, though, feel free to message me.
