Framework for Social Studies Standards To Be Released | Integrated Curriculum in Elementary Schools | Scoop.it

A draft framework for common social studies standards is set to be released on Nov. 17.

 

So what is this document? Early signs suggest that you shouldn't expect something that prescribes the specific issues, trends, or events that students should study, but rather describes the structure, tools, and habits of mind they need in order to undertake an exploration of the discipline, and offers states a frame for the content they choose.

Raising a reader: Read every day

Raising a reader: Read every day | Integrated Curriculum in Elementary Schools | Scoop.it

Setting just 20 minutes aside each day to read with your young child, you will foster listening skills, curiosity and give your child a strong foundation for future reading skills. A child who has been read to for 20 minutes each day will enter Kindergarten with over 600 hours of literacy experience. That experience can have a huge effect on future academic performance!

For Poor Schoolchildren, a Poverty of Words

For Poor Schoolchildren, a Poverty of Words | Integrated Curriculum in Elementary Schools | Scoop.it
Along the socioeconomic spectrum in New York City’s student population, there is a corresponding vocabulary gap for children beginning in kindergarten.

 

Education isn't only what happens in the walls of the classroom.  So many times parents assistance is the critial factor in making the formal education 'stick.'  This was the most jarring statistic fro this article: children of professionals hear 32 MILLION more words by age four than the poorest kids.  That is not inconsequential.

Fantastic blog, Lori. I see that RIF provides resources such as free books and other things. I wonder if they also support promoting the value of literacy in the homes "that need it most?" How would one do that?
