Against Single-Sex - The Reading & Writing Project

THE READING AND WRITING PROJECT
These social studies text sets attempt to represent not just a topic, but an issue within that topic,
and sides of that issue. The text sets present multiple perspectives on a social studies issue—as
well as multiple levels of texts and multiple modalities. The texts are arranged more or less from
easier to harder. Some articles may need to be adapted for lower level readers, and some website
text you may choose to move into Word and reformat so it is easier to read and has fewer
distractors/ads. Be sure to capture the whole URL, without spaces for line-breaks, when you seek
these online resources. Thanks to all the teachers who shared resources. If you have a
bibliography you‘d like to share with social studies teachers, please email us at:

Please keep in mind that websites are temporal and so might no longer be posted.
