Revolutionizing the teaching

of Social Studies in America

Dear Teacher, As many states are adopting the National Common Core State Standards (NCCSS), education in America is experiencing a paradigm shift. This shift is changing the way social studies is being taught. Gone are the days of rote memorization applied to events, dates, people and speeches. Today’s social studies classroom must engage students in deep critical thinking as well as applicable skill development that assesses the reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills of the NCCSS. Coupled with a commitment to technology integration, MBC Education’s goal is to ensure that students are ready for college and their future careers. Over the past three years, the planning, designing, and implementation of MBC Education program has been the cornerstone of our effort to transform social studies education in America. Using our vast library of primary and secondary historical media sources, growing collection of specifically tailored classroom lesson plans, and cutting-edge professional development opportunities for teachers, MBC is also working to ensure that our educational practices and resources can be used by schools and students all over the nation. I invite you to explore our recently launched MBC Education webpage. Here you will find historical engaging historical lessons with skill and technology integration. These resources are available to you and your students as you see fit. Come back often, as new lessons will be added on a regular basis! Please join the MBC in our effort to revolutionize education in America one classroom at a time, and make free use of the above materials, prepared by former MBC Education Director, Douglas Fowler.
