Model Lessons

Model lessons are currently available for teachers in Grades 1 through 4. Each set of lessons is specifically tied to one of the California History-Social Science Standards and many of the lessons are tied to the Common Core Curriculum Standards.

The curricular units have been developed and field-tested by classroom teachers in conjunction with Dr. Priscilla Porter, the Project Director and co-author. Model Lessons will continued to be added during the coming year.

The model lessons are available in PDF format with one unit for each of the California History-Social Science standards. For more information and to access the Model Lesson, select one of the tabs on the side column.
