6th Grade Social Studies Network

Implementing the NEW MC3 Configuration

Description of PD Series

This series is designed to introduce teachers to a new organizational structure and methods for teaching the Michigan social studies content expectations for middle school. These materials for sixth grade situate student learning in a global context as students explore social studies concepts and issues.


Through these sessions teachers will deepen their own content knowledge, explore problem-based curricula materials, and examine lessons demonstrating best practices in the teaching of social studies. All lessons and materials integrate the ELA Common Core State Standards for Literacy in History and Social Studies providing additional time in the school day to develop students’ literacy skills.
