Social Studies

Progression Evidence

As we enter the second semester, let's take a moment to revisit evidence considerations for social studies learning progressions. Social Studies evidence requires less repeated demonstrations than required for other content areas. For the majority of skills and content, students might demonstrate mastery through a combination of social studies notebook entries, peer-to-peer interactions or group-work, student-teacher conversations, and/or traditional paper/pencil opportunities.


Map knowledge should, however, generally be memorized. This includes identification of the continents, oceans, Texas, and the 50 states, depending on the grade-level. A word-list is an acceptable scaffold for student-success.


Beyond such map knowledge, students' social studies notebooks represent an on-going learning tool which can support them in future social studies courses, including 6th, 7th, and 8th gr social studies in CCISD! Therefore, please encourage authentic application of the skills and descriptions embedded in curriculum, within students' social studies notebooks. Thank you for supporting teachers' awareness of the importance of these learning tools.
