America’s Heritage: An Adventure in Liberty is a tested lesson plan resource and supplement for Kindergarten-12th grade teachers of social studies, U. S. history, U. S. government, political science, economics, geography, speech, and/or related subjects. Written by fellow teachers, the resource consists of age-appropriate and modifiable lesson plans grouped into three separate books according to level: elementary, middle, and high school. Each elementary school lesson plan correlates practically with the nationally applicable Core Knowledge Skills (grades K-6) (national edition). Each middle and high school lesson plan correlates with the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) standards (national edition). All lessons emphasize one or more themes of freedom, unity, progress, and responsibility. The resource aims not simply to present historical facts but to provide opportunities for students to explore and understand the factual and philosophical significance and meaning behind events, causes, and effects—the whys—relating to and influencing the early history of the United States.
The American Heritage Education Foundation offers these three complete curriculum programs either as free downloads, or on computer CD on this site!
“A great site for a free K-12 American History Curriculum. The site will let you sign up for a CD they will send you, free of charge! On the CD is the US History Curriculum and they don’t pass your email address on to any other site or bug you later for donations or to sell you anything! If you want it in paper format, they will charge you $20 but why pay the money when you can get the same material on CD for free?” – Submitted by Edwina Moody
