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, 2008 and 2009 Summer Institutes. The lessons will be taught in 5, 8, and 11th grade MDUSD classrooms during the 2009-2010 school year with follow-up meetings to discuss student progress and student work.
Follow the links below to see examples of lesson plans developed by our teachers and staff. They are divided by grade level and single and multi-day lessons.
