This is for all you social studies teachers out there!  I taught middle school social studies last year.  Here are some web sites that I found to be extremely valuable in planning my lessons.  Know of a site that I missed?  E-mail me at dramaldy@yahoo.com  I would like to thank Mr. Paul Grant, as many of these web sites are ones that he gave me.  If you find any of these links to be dead, please let me know so that I can remove them.
