Resources

The Porter Resource Room focuses on materials and activities for elementary school and middle school teachers. All of the resource materials are aligned to the California History-Social Science Standards and are housed in a library type format.

Undergraduate Liberal Studies majors and teacher credential students use the resources of the Porter Room for assistance in writing lesson plans required in classes such as Geography 300, Economics 311, History 370 History of California, TA 481 Creative Drama in the Classroom, and EELB 533/534, the Methods Class for Teaching Social Studies.

Copies of all California State-Adopted social studies textbooks for Kindergarten to Grade 8 are available for review in the Porter Resource Room.
