Several CLIC partners have developed or identified resources to support teachers and students who are engaged in distance/blended learning due to the global pandemic. This page contains links of these helpful resources to consider. As always, please refer to your district’s guidelines or plan around distance learning.
Bridging the Divide: History-Social Science Lessons Optimized for Distance Learning
The Bridging the Divide Project is the result of a collaboration among the History-Social Science Regional Leads of the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association (CCSESA). The goal of the project is to fill the void of high-quality distance learning lesson plans aligned to the California History-Social Science Framework and Standards, California Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, and the California English Language Development Standards. Lessons are available at each grade level, Kindergarten through Twelve, along with links to any resources needed for implementation. These resources are provided at no cost to California teachers.
California State Library: Quick Access to California K-12 Online Content during the COVID-19 Crisis
California offers — at no cost to local schools, districts or students — access to online educational content from Encyclopaedia Britannica, ProQuest and TeachingBooks.net for use by every public K-12 school and student in the state. These content resources, sometimes referred to as "library databases," provide teachers, school librarians and students with a massive amount of digital information: magazines, books, scientific research, newspaper articles, photos, videos and more — all aligned with the standards that California has created for its schools.
