NYCDOE: Passport to Social Studies – Grade 9 Unit 3 Text Set
This Passport to Social Studies text set is for the third unit of the Global History and Geography I course, titled: The Ottoman and the Ming Dynasties (pre-1600 CE). The curated collection of documents included in the text set supports students’ examination of two powerful kingdoms, the Ming Dynasty and the Ottoman Empire, to create a comparative analysis of the two Eurasian civilizations. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the corresponding Passport to Social Studies Grade 9 Unit Guide. The primary, secondary, and tertiary sources identified for each lesson in the set have been selected to support the lesson's objective and suggested activities. For each lesson there may be a selection of print-based texts, images, maps, or photographs.
Members of the Social Studies Department worked with educators and historians to design and curate the materials provided within. This text set can be adapted and customized to meet your students’ individual needs. Each of the subsequent Grade 9 and Grade 10 units will be posted on WeTeachNYC in accordance with the NYCDOE Social Studies Scope & Sequence pacing during the 2018-19 school year.
