Our friend and colleague, Ashley Palelis, is the social studies specialist at the Florida Department of Education. She is reaching out to US History and Civics teachers here in Florida to get some idea of which course benchmarks are most difficult to teach and to learn. Any feedback that you can provide here would be greatly appreciated! Here message is below, and her email is Ashley.Palelis@fldoe.org. This is the state asking its teachers their thoughts, so share them!! And, btw, we would love to hear this as well, for both US History and Civics, so feel free to CC me at Stephen.Masyada@ucf.edu..
