Social Science Instruction "How To"

vertical alignment objectives taught which build upon one another; pre-k objectives set the foundation for kindergarten, kindergarten for 1st, etc.
horizontal alignment objectives are taught across the grade level at all schools and districts; example 3rd graders all receive the same objectives
integrated content all subjects are taught interconnecting with one another; example: teach about the Civil War, but bring in Science, Math, Reading, etc.
connections and relative concepts don't single out concepts; connect them with other ideas; for example during the time of Exploration, there were several countries coming to the new land; explain how they all interacted or the conflicts that existed
thematic units select a theme "The American Revolution" or "liberty" and teach how this theme was perceived from all angles (the colonists, Britain, France, Spain, etc.)
human development stages teach according to the grade level or age of the student; younger students will learn based on self; older students based on where they fit into the big picture
collaborative learning students can be assigned certain parts of a topic; example during the westward movement-some can teach about transportation methods, others about the people moving west, others about why they were moving west, etc. -present their findings to the class
inquiry based learning strategies younger students-teacher question/teacher directed; older students: teacher question/student directed or student question/student directed
civic competence students will learn about how they can contribute to society or their community
concrete learning basic learning; lays the foundation; mostly for the younger students
abstract learning more in-depth learning; higher order thinking skills (HOTS); Bloom's Taxonomy-application, synthesis, analysis, evaluation for older students to apply their learning to society
egocentric placing self in close range; personal space; it's about me; for the younger students; me and my family, me and my school
spatial awareness the knowledge of our position in relation to others; me and my school (younger)vs. me and the world(older)
effective ways to teach social studies plays, dramatizations, videos, field trips, guest speakers, simulations, role-playing, retelling stories, etc.
ways to bring in technology videos, the internet, projected images (ELMO), audio for music; guest speakers' presentations
social studies components history, geography, economics, government, citizenship, culture, social studies skills, technology
primary sources first-hand; actual sources; examples-speeches; newspapers from that day; journals, actual documents
secondary sources second-hand; retold; did not happen on the day; examples-newspapers bringing back information from the past, interpretation of a speech, retelling the events of a war
bias, point of view, propaganda most of what is written is written from someone's perspective so it is biased and from the writer's point of view; propaganda is trying to encourage you to think their way
