American History Complete Curriculum PLUS

Matthew S.

As a first year teacher working at a school with no preexisting U.S. History curriculum, I sought a comprehensive, thorough, and creative curriculum to use as a foundation from which to build. This set-up is exactly what I needed. Exceptionally done. Without a doubt, the best buy that I have made on TPT.

I'm very impressed with this collection. My students need more hands-on activities, and this fits the bill. There are TONS of resources in this package. Don't let the price fool you. It is worth every penny!

American History Complete Curriculum PLUS

Elizabeth M.

Wow!! This is an amazing product. It is packed full of highly engaging activities that I just can not wait to implement into my classroom! So many of the lessons encourage students to work together and encourage high level thinking. The lessons get the students out of their seats and move about the room. I also have to mention just how fabulous the seller is. He responds to any email so quickly and does anything to ensure he has a happy customer.

I just want to let everyone know what a lifesaver this bundle has been for me. As a first year social studies teacher with almost zero resources, this bundle kept me afloat and more! My students find the activities to be engaging, and the materials and lessons are varied enough that it holds their interest every day. On many lessons, Mr. E has offered differentiated activities already made for you, which is a great timesaver. Those that aren't differentiated can easily be modified by the teacher. I also got access to a nice bundle of digital resources, and am enjoying the Digital Interactive Notebooks. So far, not each "unit" has a digital interactive notebook, but they all have print interactive notebooks. I will be looking for any future additions to the digital section. Thank you Mr. E!
