Do you want a tech tip, trick, or tool to enhance your teaching of Social Studies? This presentation will introduce you to a variety of such tips, tricks, and tools, such as online interactive history games, web sites, and other technology tools that will engage your students in history, government, civics, and geography. This session will be most beneficial for 5th – 12th grade teachers of U.S. Social Studies and will have a primary focus on History and Geography, although all Social Studies teachers can benefit from the ideas and resources presented.

You will learn how to access “Primary Sources” from online sites, including the Library of Congress, and be given strategies for using them frequently in your lessons. In addition, you will be shown how to access lesson plans, teaching materials, and activities available for teachers and students, from a variety of other sites. One such site is Colonial Williamsburg, where you will find a wealth of well-prepared resources available to support the teaching of U.S. History. Ideas on incorporating these resources and materials into your Social Studies classes will also be shared during this session.
