More Than 100 New Topics in Go Social Studies Go

Go Social Studies Go is a great resource that I initially reviewed about eighteen months ago. This afternoon I received an update about it from its developer Kenneth Udhe. Go Social Studies Go has added more than 100 new topics since I first tried it out.

Go Social Studies Go is essentially a series of multimedia books about common social studies topics. The site is divided into four main sections; World Geography, World Religions, World History, and U.S. History. Within each section is a series of booklets containing text, pictures, videos, and links to additional resources.

Applications for Education
Go Social Studies Go could be an excellent resource for middle school social studies teachers. For the topics covered, the multimedia booklets provide as much content area information as you'll see in a typical textbook. For high school students, the multimedia booklets could be a good primer or refresher on many topics.
