How can this approach help me teach?

We keep it simple so you can stay confident.

We created a basic rubric.

By using our Four Domain Model, you can quickly see the landscape you should explore, while enjoying the freedom to combine resources with confidence.

Our lessons are neatly organized.

Each domain is split into subject areas, which make it easy to identify what will interest your students and examine it at greater depth.

Subject areas are further divided into topics that zoom in on the details and make the history vibrate with specificity. Mix and match the topics that make sense for your classroom.

You teach what you want.

As you explore each domain, subject area and topic, pick lessons that fit your schedule and match your own curriculum. Simply keep in mind that you should have a balance of lessons from each domain. You’re in the driver’s seat; we give you the map.

Use our ready-made lesson plans.

Lesson plans are color-coded so you know where they belong in our Four Domain Model. They are ready to use because they have been prepared by a team of expert teachers pulling from the best resources in the world.

The Four Domain Model works like the four cardinal directions.

A well-rounded curriculum is balanced across all four domains. We recommend teaching the domains in the following order for maximum clarity.
