Social Studies Leadership Team

Elementary Teachers

What - Last Session

During the last session we will spend a lot of time reviewing and discussing the revised grade level content expectations being presented to the State Board of Education in April 2015.

Original Description

Elementary teachers who are passionate about teaching students and advancing Social Studies Education are invited to attend. This is a pilot year to access the need for having elementary teachers meet and collaborate each year on improving student achievement in Social Studies.

In the 2014-15 school year some time will be spent on improving and sharing summative assessments. Participants will be trained in summative assessment development and how to use Google Drive as a collaborative platform. Participants must commit to all four sessions. Lunch is on your own, there is no cost, but pre-registration is required.


Social Studies Leadership meetings are an opportunity for Elementary Social Studies Leaders across Genesee and Lapeer Counties to collaborate on improving student achievement.

During these meeting teachers will

  • be updated on the latest Social Studies information,
  • receive customized updates on and provide feedback for Illuminate
  • receive access to resources,
  • learn how to upgrade summative assessments,
  • share ideas on effective instructional practices,
  • work on collaborative projects
  • deepen their understanding of Social Studies
  • deepen their understanding of Google Drive
