Lesson Plans That Meet Georgia Performance Standards for Social Studies

Welcome to the Carter Center Teacher Resource Center! The Center's work offers a valuable learning opportunity for your students. Our efforts to wage peace, fight disease, and build hope around the world illustrate relevant principles of American Government and Civics, International Economics, United States and World History, and Geography.

Lessons found here align with and support the Georgia Performance Standards for Social Studies. Each lesson incorporates material from current Carter Center programs, which are described in depth on this website. Performance standards listed on each lesson are suggested; additional standards may apply. Also, lessons may be easily adapted for use with curricula in other states and countries.
