The Student Projects component of the Global History and Geography Online Resource is an outgrowth of two years' worth of "Calls for Content" in social studies. Some of the projects apply to specific units while others apply to overarching and recurring concept/themes such as culture. Some of these long-term projects may be completed during a single marking period, or semester or throughout the entire two-year program. Many of these projects culminate in research papers, exhibitions, or student presentations before a classroom and/or larger audience. The projects are real and were developed by classroom teachers. In day-to-day social studies instruction, teachers have a wide variety of instructional techniques and strategies from which to choose. The projects included in this component can be adapted to best meet the instructional needs of teachers and students.
