Season of Independence is designed to be a resource for students and teachers across the nation and we are grateful to the work of our Summer Teacher Institute participants and National Teacher Advisory Group for suggesting and providing feedback on themes and activities for students based on the diverse needs of their schools, districts, states, and the field.

The suggested activities in the eight thematic units of these teacher resources are aligned to history standards from the National Center for History in the Schools at the University of California, Los Angeles, which were developed under the guidance of the National Council for History Standards. These include Historical Thinking Standards and United States History Content Standards (Grades 5-12).
