Social Studies Help
With a Bachelor of Arts in History from SUNY-Binghamton, a Master of Arts in American History from SUNY-Albany, and over 30 years of classroom experience as a Social Studies teacher and as a tutor, I'm ready to help you succeed in your Social Studies classes.
I taught all subjects 9-12 in my years at East Meadow High School, including Global 1 and 2, U.S. History, Government and Economics, and AP® Government.
Along with reviewing content, I help with week-to-week concerns such as:
New York State Social Studies Framework This is the main curriculum guide from New York State. This provides the guidelines for teachers to follow in the classroom to ensure coverage of the same basic topics and skills expected in the day-to-day class and on the Regents exam.
U.S. History and Government New Framework Exam This page offers the most up-to-date information on the New Framework exam that was finally implemented in June 2023.
Global History and Geography Regents Exams This page holds the archive of the Global exams that have been given since the transition to the New Framework began in June 2018.
Timeline For U.S. Regents Transition This document from the New York State Department of Education details the changes in the schedule for the deployment of the New Framework Regents exams.
This page provides an excellent jump-off point for students studying APUSH. With three decades of classroom experience and a Master of Arts in American History, I'm happy to help you sharpen your knowledge of history, approach to your studies, and preparedness for the exam.
Of the many courses taught in my classroom career, this may have been my favorite. A wealth of resources may be found here, starting with a summary of the updates implemented in the Fall of 2023.
