Learn how Facing History's resources meet the newly revised Massachusetts History and Social Science Framework and view upcoming professional development opportunities on how to use civics resources in your classroom.
These are resources to support the Facing History and Ourselves' unit Civil Rights Historical Investigations. These primary and secondary sources can be used with the standards-based literacy strategies modeled during the workshop.
One of the reasons that Facing History teachers are so successful is because we don’t simply hand over materials and bid you well. After participating in professional development, educators are paired one-on-one with a Program Associate whose mission is to help teachers further their professional development and job satisfaction by bringing our materials and methods to life in the classroom. They help you apply your professional development experience to develop course syllabi and lesson plans; suggest continuing education through webinars, workshops, and seminars; observe in the classroom and conduct coaching and follow-up support; assist and model for teachers how to integrate technology and social media; identify outstanding teachers for local and national teacher leadership groups; and much more.
