Virtual Classroom

PictureWe are creating a series of virtual classrooms that encourage exploration, engagement, and critical thinking. Our first classroom is available now! The theme of this classroom is a general introduction to our site and features information on indigenous culture, slavery, and Polk's presidency.

This resource is completely free! Register below to access the Educator Document with links to all the classroom files, a list of related standards, and further details on how to incorporate this interactive hyper-doc into your virtual learning space. By registering you will not be added to our mailing list, however you may receive an email at a later date requesting feedback on the resource you are registering for.
