Yes, our plans are to expand the site to include more grades in the future. If you are a teacher or museum educator please consider helping us BUILD IT.
TeachIt has a program consultant to answer these types of questions! If you can’t find the answer in the grade-level sections of the Connecticut Social Studies Frameworks, feel free to contact us at TeachItCT@CTHumanities.org. We are happy to provide curricular and frameworks support to contributors.
Our Teach It team hopes that you will find many benefits to creating activities for Teach It. The primary benefit is that posting an activity on the Teach It website gives not only state, but national and international exposure to your organization and the history of your town or region. Teach It activities provide a way for you to extend your reach well into Connecticut’s education community and beyond. Teach It activities allow you to use content that you’ve already created, add primary source materials from your organization’s collections, and offer step-by-step instructions to match your product to the state Connecticut Social Studies Frameworks. Better still, the Teach It website will be linked to ConnecticutHistory.org, Connecticut Humanities’s popular and award-winning website featuring history content from each of Connecticut’s 169 towns.
Currently you may upload your resources individually or by attaching a .pdf or .word document which contains all your resources to the Contribute Activity form. The form accepts images in .jpg or .png file formats. It is helpful if you upload a file that will be legible online. Think about how easy it will be to read or to see the finer details. If the file is too large to upload feel free to email TeachItCT@CTHumanities.org. We also have the ability to embed video and maps. Get in touch and we will work with you to find a solution.Contribute Activity
