Strengthening Civics & History in South Dakota
K-12 Education: SD materials development

This area of South Dakota's Civics and History Initiative will focus on the development of instructional materials and classroom resources as options for schools. Materials for elementary, middle, and high school classrooms will be available for teaching South Dakota history, government, and geography.

Materials will include lesson plans, teaching tools, digital primary source documents, historic photos and videos, and interviews with experts.

The materials and educator training will be housed online and easily accessible.

This work will begin in early 2022.
