This three credit graduate level course is designed to provide educators with an in-depth exploration of the history of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and how they can use this knowledge not only when teaching social studies, but to implement cross-curricular lessons in all subject areas consistent with the Pennsylvania Academic Standards. This will increase their students’ academic success in meeting the Pennsylvania Academic Standards, and will aide students in performing well on state and local assessments.  This is an online Moodle class, and each session contains a series of lessons, videos, written responses, and other activities.
