Reminder of year 2 social studies implementation trainings
A reminder from the DE for year two of the new social studies standards implementation:
- Asking ALL teachers to attend statewide PD
- Begin unpacking standards and select at least one unit per grade level to field test using new standards (this is started in the training)
- Use the unit assessment tool to gauge the quality of the unit (provided in the training)
- Create horizontal and vertical district teams to create a cohesive outline of what Social Studies looks like in the district.
