                 New Online Lesson Plans Now Available from the Delaware Public Archives

    Since last summer, the Delaware Public Archives has been working to transform their lesson plans at the high school level to fully online components. Along with the seven lessons that were created last year, the Archives now has a total of 22 lesson plans online that will help Delaware teachers fulfill the state's social studies needs at the secondary level. Along with dozens of online primary sources, the materials provide the standards covered, step by step procedures, and additional information that will complement the lesson. Among the topics covered are the Civil War, Reconstruction, Immigration, Suffrage, the Draft, World War I, Propaganda, Desegregation in the 1950s and 1970s, and the Spanish Flu. Formative Assessments and several instructional videos are also included.
