Four years ago, Amy Bloom, a History/Social Studies Consultant for Oakland Schools, realized there was a massive gap in Michigan’s move to tie Social Studies coursework to the new State Standards. The essential, missing link? Classroom Curriculum!
The Michigan Department of Education provided clear Content Expectations for Social Studies and History, so Amy simply stepped up to the enormous job of leading the Michigan Citizenship Collaborative Curriculum (MC3) project to find, create and align the content that Kindergarten-to-Grade 11 teachers would find appropriate and useful.
“We encourage Social Studies and History teachers to personalize our material – to take it and make it their own. The entire curriculum is online on the Oakland Schools website, and it’s FREE to download and use!”
