Save the Date! ICSS 2016 Conference:
Times of Transition: Shifts in Power Throughout History
The Indiana Council for the Social Studies is now accepting presentation proposals for our 2016 state
We are happy to announce that the sixth grade project to identify and develop e-materials for Indiana's sixth grade social studies is underway. It will continue for the 2016-2017 school year ending on 1 May 2017. The purpose of the project is to provide a supply of different e-materials aligned to the Indiana standards. Teachers may elect to use those items that fit their lesson plans. We are NOT producing an electronic version of the sixth grade course. Rather a collection of items to HELP TEACH the sixth grade course. The items are free of charge to Indiana's sixth grade teachers. This is just another effort on the part of the Indiana Council for the Social Studies to promote quality instruction in Indiana social studies classrooms. We hope they prove a helpful asset for sixth grade teachers.
You will find a link to the catalog of materials on this website marked with the date of the latest iteration. The catalog is in RTF format to ensure that schools using Google Tools can easily access it.
The first sixth-grade unit, on the Ancient Mediterranean World, is now complete. You can find all the links in the catalog below.
It is currently undergoing its final edit and the audio files needed to read each page aloud to students are being created and added to the pages. Check links you like frequently to see if the page has been upgraded.
Current Catalog -- 12 August 2016
