The entire modern American History curriculum and the most popular supplements.

No textbook needed. Google 1:1 Compatibility. Save time planning.

The modern American History Complete Curriculum is an entire course curriculum, jam-packed with the 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 40,000 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 the Progressive Era and Gilded Age through Modern Day, this entire course also features the most popular of my best-selling supplements.  Also included are differentiated primary source activities to provide just the right scaffolding for each student, 365 classroom warmups to get students ready to learn history, end-of-unit review games, and classroom Escape Rooms!

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, you receive unlimited access to future modern American History releases.  Any new release relating to the curriculum will be added here 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.
