Lesson Plans

Lesson Plans

Students in the University of Vermont’s Education class, EDEL 157: Social Education and Social Studies created lesson plans using CDI collections as their source material. The class was designed for pre-service teachers, and these young teachers gained experience designing social studies curricula for early-elementary aged students. Selected lesson plans have been posted here as teaching resources.
