Americans All Supplemental Classroom Resources

We support excellence in social studies instruction and promote civic engagement to help ensure all students are prepared to participate in our nation’s democracy, economy and workforce. Our goal is to give all public and private K–12 schools nationwide free electronic access to the Americans All program resources. They reflect the importance of diversity in social studies instruction. This information includes ethnic and cultural texts, period-specific photographs and posters and a music publication. Our foundation invests more than 80 percent of membership fees to communities that support our program. To simplify school registration, our contact database includes information on most of our nation’s public and private schools, and each is assigned an identification number. All schools need to do is designate a point of contact. Schools, students and students’ families and friends participate in Americans All at no cost and receive a free, 3-month trial to our Social Legacy Network.

Americans All members can join the program’s Social Legacy Network for only $4 per month. As a thank-you from the People of America Foundation for their support of social studies education, the first three months of that trial membership are free! One of the major benefits of the network is that members can receive discounts on goods and services from our Business Legacy Partners.

Teachers can access grade-level-specific resource databases with information that supports state history and civics content standards. Embedded in these databases are links to other information to help strengthen learning opportunities and facilitate interdisciplinary connections. In addition, teachers can electronically access the Americans All collection that includes ethnic and cultural texts and songs, posters, hundreds of period-specific photographs, reference texts and grade-level-specific teacher’s guides. Moreover, sample lesson plans, simulations and test questions are offered. They can also take advantage of professional development opportunities that impart best practices for using these and other resources.

Contact information on our members is not shared or published.

“Her name is Ester Baumgartner. Do you know her? She's a pretty Swiss girl who sings beautifully, and I think she lives near here." Allan had posed the question in a broken mixture of Hebrew and English to whoever would listen and could understand him. Allan had met Ester while on an archaeological dig at Masada in the Negev, Israel. All he knew by the time they parted ways was her name and that she was staying in Tel Aviv.
