Attention Teachers: Great Resources for Teaching about Different Parts of the World

January 23, 2014 Comments off

Are you a teacher who is required to teach post WWII but don’t have time? Too many materials and not enough time to develop a succinct teaching plan? This curriculum is for you! V-NEP has partnered with members of the National Council for the Social Studies, PA Board of Education, PA Council for the Social Studies, Intermediate Unit leadership and educators to develop a dynamic United States History curriculum (lesson plans, quizzes, activities and films) that will allow educators to reach and teach U.S. Modern History, as well as fulfill Modern History standard requirements. Our curriculum integrates six social science disciplines and history through a multiple subject approach while addressing educational domains, Essential Elements of Instruction, Progressive and Traditional teaching strategies, and traditional and alternative assessments.

To teach U.S. modern history through the understanding of the humanistic and cultural aspects of America’s military conflicts and how they have influenced the fabric of our global society. In carrying out this mission our goals are to:

  • Teach military history (WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan) through the stories of those who have served
  • Help students become engaged, thoughtful citizens by expanding their knowledge base, developing vital critical thinking and decision-making skills, and enhancing their understanding of the United States’ most cherished values: honor, liberty and freedom
  • Streamline early U.S. history materials to allow teachers ample time to teach U.S. modern history
  • Ensure educational materials fulfill state/national standard requirements
  • Partner with entities that will help us fulfill our mission
  • Promote national pride and bolster a positive national image of America’s veterans
