Welcome to Rosie the Riveting! I’m just one of the many riveting social studies out there, going into my classroom every day to try and inspire students to love history and learning. If you’re here that probably describes you too. It’s not easy be engaging with today’s students, but somebody has to do it!
Why I Created This Site
We all want to be the best teachers we can be but there is only so much time in a day to create new activities, research new technology and test that it actually helps the students learn. What if we could find the best-of-the-best middle and high school social studies lessons and share them with each other?
My goals are to:
- Save you time and hassle by sharing proven lesson plan ideas
- Connect you with inspirational teachers
So Who Am I?
My name is Jenna, and I’ve been teaching middle and high school social studies for the last nine years. I currently teach 8th grade American history. My original lesson plans and use of technology in the classroom have earned me a few awards including Teacher of the Year by the Pennsylvania Council of the Social Studies. I’m a Christian, a wife to a wonderful husband, a mother to a beautiful baby son, and a total nerd.
I love traveling, school supplies and beating my husband at weekly fantasy football.
