Trade and Commerce in 17th-Century England: Proclamations

Teacher Resources

For High School Teachers

           The scope of this exhibit focuses on a period in history that is included to the 9-12th grade requirements towards U.S and world history based upon the Minnesota State Social Studies Standards. In addition it can also serve as a helpful teaching tool for elective history classes such as AP European History, though due to the varied curriculum of those classes and their associated tests we do not have a list of published and met standards we can provide. For U.S. and World History, below is a list of which standards, substandards, and benchmarks this exhibit can be used as a learning tool for, and which specific pages within the exhibit are relevant to each category.
