Common Core Instructional Practice Guides: History/Social Studies Grades 6-12

Two "things" I particularly appreciate about criteria #1 are the direct references to "text-based instruction" and "speaking": "Text-based instruction engages students in reading, speaking, or writing about texts." Too often, social studies class becomes a listening class: students listening to history teachers tell the stories of our past. But students need to be reading these texts and gathering their knowledge from text-based stories that are enhanced by teachers' insights and experiences. Unfortunately, the speaking and listening standards are not directly referenced as literacy responsibilities within the disciplines of History/Social Studies. I can't begin to express how pleased I am so see an expectation that these essential interactive skills be integrated seamlessly into the SS classroom.

Great template included in this post that teachers can use today in their classrooms.  I love his use of not only Articles of the Week, but that they are articles that argue one side of an issue in particular.

This is interesting. Reading level for curriculum planning is set by grade level in the common core and not by the students actual reading level.  When I fly to the Mideast I often wish I was starting from Paris France and not the USA. Common Core seems to have figured out how we can do that. Our text books as far as I know are on grade level.

 

Reading specialists aren't available in all schools, nor are summer school, catch up programs that focus on reading improvement. Investing in those programs would be money well spent because remediation and moving lock step are often hard to do in the same 40 to 50 minutes each day. Demanding students catch up and keep up without such an investment in reading remediation programs is like telling someone to go fish in an empty pond. People can fall behind on reading levels at all grade levels so this remediation should not just be for primary grades.
