NYCDOE: Passport to Social Studies – Grade 9 Unit 6 Text Set
Note to Teachers: To help with remote learning, student graphic organizers for this unit are available on the NYCDOE TeachHub in a Google Drive folder along with Passport to Social Studies lessons that have been adjusted for remote learning. Access these materials by following these instructions.
This Passport to Social Studies Text Set is for the sixth and final unit of the Global History and Geography I course, titled: Interactions and Disruptions During the First Global Age (ca. 1400-1750 CE).
The curated collection of documents included in the text set supports students’ examination of the development of global connections and the effects of European expansion during the First Global Age through the lens of the Essential Question: How did the Encounter transform the Atlantic world? It is designed to be used in conjunction with the corresponding Passport to Social Studies Grade 9 Unit 6 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.
