Common Core History Lesson Plans

Teachers of history and social science are helping build a library of Common Core aligned history lesson plans that educators can use to teach College and Career Readiness standards. The history lesson plans, created in our Skill-Based Lesson Planner, are designed to teach high-level literacy skills for primary and secondary texts and promote critical and analytical thinking skills.

To get started, select a history lesson below. You will be taken to the lesson summary where you can learn more about the literacy standards and skills taught in the lesson. Any of our public lessons can be copied to your lesson plans and revised to fit your students’ needs.
