Lesson Plans

Lesson plans that link Connecticut Explored stories to the high school American History curriculum.  The plans are designed to make Connecticut Explored (and its predecessor Hog River Journal) easy to use in the classroom as one- or two-day plans and are written by high school history teachers.  Below are the standard Connecticut High School US History units.  We plan to provide lesson plans for each unit.  Links to the plans currently available are listed below:
