I am so thrilled that the bank of Educational Resources lesson plans is growing! We have lesson plans covering a variety of topics and we are continuing to add new ones. Thank you to all the members who have contributed! Check out the Educational Resources committee page for the guidelines for submitting a lesson plans and consider sharing one of your own.   

The lesson plans can be found in the Education section of www.dar.org, under Resources for Teachers here: www.dar.org/edu.

The lesson plans that are currently available online cover the following topics:

  • King George & those Pesky Colonies
  • Washington’s Spies: A Brief Understanding of American Revolution Espionage on the Road to Independence
  • Historical Events Leading to the American Revolution
  • Basic Genealogy
  • Trail of Tears
  • Letters from Jamestown
  • Abraham Lincoln: Great Emancipator or Just Another Politician?
  • Fabulous Fun Flag Facts

The Educational Resources Committee also has a survey available to obtain information as to the kinds of lesson plans that are needed. Please let your teachers know that they can provide direction as to the kinds of lesson plans that they would find most helpful.  The survey can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DAREduResources.

Please continue to encourage your teachers – those that you work with through the Community Classroom committee and others that you know personally -- to visit the website to utilize the lesson plans, or even to submit some of their own. If you have any questions, please contact me at educationalresources@nsdar.org
