Creating iBooks for Social Studies

In a period of approximately 11 weeks, students enrolled in two elementary education methods courses agreed to publish an iBook integrating the Utah State Core standards for Language Arts, Social Studies, and the Ten Themes of Social Studies published by the National Council for the Social Studies. The First Edition of the book we created is a culmination of a significant amount of effort put forth by a group of individuals willing to take a journey into the unknown.  The result is a collection of lesson plans, links, and resources aligned with the ten social studies themes endorsed by the National Council of Social Studies (NCSS). Videos, photographs, lessons, and websites were gathered by senior education students at Southern Utah University (under the direction of Dr. Brian C. Ludlow) and organized to align with the Utah State Core and NCSS standards. Each resource is directly correlated with grade-specific standards. The book contains 229 pages of well-organized material and serves as a tremendous free resource for any elementary school teacher.
