The American History Complete Curriculum is an entire course curriculum, jam-packed with the most engaging and popular supplement items. These student-centered, engaging, and authentic activities are guaranteed to reenergize your classroom.  This curriculum has been tried, tested, and perfected, and these resources have been positively reviewed by over 30,000 teachers.  It is time to toss the textbook, skip the boring worksheet, and get students excited about history.

This curriculum provides a plethora of ready-to-go classroom materials, and is designed to engage a variety of learning styles.  All students learn differently, and these materials were created with that in mind.  Each unit features daily resources organized to provide the best flow for your students, "I Can" statement logs to track student understanding and progress, and a variety of hands-on materials including Crime Scene Investigations, literacy-based analysis, image and text analysis, classroom debates, simulations, and much more!

Spanning from Native Americans and the 13 Colonies to Reconstruction, this entire course also features the most popular of my best-selling supplements.  Infuse the traditional interactive notebooks to meet the needs of all learners.  Begin class with (or assign as enrichment) differentiated primary sources to provide just the right scaffolding for each student.  End units of study with one of my popular Trivia Challenge review games. Track student learning with the included "I Can" statement logs (and post the included posters in class), and enjoy access to the Native American bundle to teach about native tribes.

Read below to view the thousands of pages of resources that are included in this standard curriculum.

Yes!  The same great resources are available in either place.  However, purchasing here gives you some unique and personalized advantages.

First, purchasing here gives you an easy-to-use dashboard where you can log-in, browse, and download whatever resource you need (whenever you need it).  The organization is supreme to what TpT offers (you would just download one large zip file).

Second, only here will you receive comprehensive, guiding unit PowerPoints with guided notes for each unit. These are complete with Teacher Guides to provide "break points" in the guided notes to stop and dive into one of my many hands-on activities that you are receiving!  Again, this is an added bonus to purchasing here.

Third, only here will you have the ability to pay with a simple and easy payment plan. Each curriculum and supplement bundle offers a one-time price OR a 12-month price.  You receive 100% access on day 1, and after your 12 month commitment has ended you still retain unlimited access.

Finally, if you choose the PLUS curriculum, you receive unlimited access to future releases.  Any new release relating to the curriculum will be added to the PLUS curriculum at no additional charge.  Whether you purchased 2 months or 2 years ago, you will have 100% access to new content.  That is not a feature on TpT.

American History Complete Curriculum

Red P.

Wow, I am so glad that I bought this at the start of the school year! It's my first time teaching U.S. history, and I use these lessons to breathe life into my district curriculum activities. Some of these (like the Constitution scavenger hunt) also make awesome pre-planned sub activities. Even though I don't use every activity, I consider it money well-spent to know I have all these lessons ready to go if and when I want them. This packet has been a life-saver!

I LOVE how organized and thorough these units and lessons are. Can't wait to use them in class!

This resource is for use by one teacher only. If a co-worker loves my material, please give them the link to purchase their own curriculum. Additional teachers must purchase their own curriculum.  

If you are a school administrator and are interested in purchasing multiple licenses, please contact me directly for pricing information.

After purchase, you can download anything you'd like and use it in your own classroom.  Since all access is given immediately, and due to the digital nature of these products, refunds are generally not given. Please read all reviews and ask any questions before purchase.
