The following multi-day and one-day lesson plans utilize literacy strategies to help students unlock meaning in the textbook and primary source readings. The following lessons were developed by MDUSD and UC Berkeley History-Social Science Project history teachers during the 2007 - 2012 Summer Institutes. The lessons will be taught in 4, 5, 8, and 11th grade MDUSD classrooms during this school year with follow-up meetings to discuss student progress and student work.
