Elementary Social Studies Specialist
December 15, 2016
The Elementary Social Studies Adoption Committee met for the first time on December 15, 2016. This committee will be recommending curriculum for implementation in 2018-19. Norms were established, the charter was shared and the "most" for consensus decision-making was agreed upon. The group reviewed input from parent and teacher surveys, identifying trends and perspectives. The idea of using an equity lens and culturally responsive instruction was shared, discussed, and validated by the group. State standards and the C3 framework (college, career and civics) were explored and research was used to provide guidance for future decisions. We began the work of identifying "Big Ideas", K - 5.
