I have mentioned it before, but if you teach social studies, American history or American government, I would truly recommend HippoCampus “Teaching with the power of Digital media”. Here are links to lesson plans you can use with your class. Why not let your students study this on their own and then have a discussion in class later on. Each post has a “In this topic you will learn about“. You can also make your own custom HippoCampus page for your students. Excellent idea for homework!
