Introduction to the Social Studies Framework K-5 December 4, 2014

This workshop will allow participants to become familiar with the recently adopted Social Studies framework. This workshop is for teachers new to the Social Studies Frameworks. New York State K-12 Social Studies Framework (“NYS Framework”) is anchored in the New York State Common Core Standards for Literacy and Writing and New York State Learning Standards for Social Studies. These standards serve as a consistent set of expectations for what students should learn and be able to do, so that we can ensure that every student across New York State is prepared to be an active and engaged citizen ready to pursue college or a career.


Participants should bring a copy of their grade level Frameworks.
