Elementary Curriculum and Instruction

​​​Social Studies


Social Studies curriculum and instruction provides students the knowledge and skills necessary to become life-long learners and informed and responsible citizens on the United states and the World.  This is accomplished through the teaching of broad concepts, social studies skills, and learning strategies.

Guiding Principles: 

  • Social Studies content instruction focuses on broad concepts, connections, changes over time, and cause and effect.

  • Social Studies skills instruction focuses on writing; development of note making skill; analysis of visual documents, primary sources, maps and graphics; and reading in the content area.

  • Social Studies instruction actively engages students in the learning process.

  • Social Studies curriculum, skills and vocabulary are most effective when vertically aligned K-12.

  • ELA and Social Studies Instruction in elementary are integrated whenever possible
