Elementary Social Studies

  • SS
    Elementary Social Studies instruction is implemented through a literacy lens.  The curriculum was developed from the NJCCCS for Social Studies.  However, the students demonstrate mastery of these content standards through application of the comprehension strategies: connecting, envisioning, questioning, determining importance, inferring, synthesizing, and monitoring understanding.  Students are expected to represent these interpretations and analyses through talk and/or writing about content reading, always founded with text evidence.
