The curriculum presents a history/social science framework; addresses history/social science state standards; sets a context; poses focus questions; cites expected learning outcomes; discusses assessment; lists key concepts; suggests an essential vocabulary, primary sources, and visuals; and provides a detailed step-by-step procedure for implementing each of the four lessons.
