Connecting Veterans and Active Service Personnel to Social Studies Classrooms

The most obvious connection for inviting a veteran or active service member into a social studies classroom is to speak to students about days of remembrance), a specific war or the life of a soldier. However, there are many places in our curriculum where local veterans can be an excellent resource. While Veterans Day and Memorial Day are obvious classroom connections, we encourage teachers to consider opportunities like those listed in the OCSS Veterans in the Social Studies Classroom Resource.
The booklet provides:
  • curricular connections
  • tips for both the teacher and the guest speaker in preparing for classroom visits
  • links to educational programs and resources
  • flag etiquette and folding ceremony information
  • links to state and national veteran organizations
