Middle School Humanities Update

Greetings Humanities teachers!

This is a quick update to let you know that an Its Learning page, titled “MS Humanities,” was created for you to access scope and sequence documents and other resources in the future to support your planning and teaching.

In the coming weeks, resources created in building-level PLC teams will be added. Teams continue to iterate on current year-long plans, integrating Calkins writing units with social studies content/skills, and reading instruction. Several teams are also incorporating elements of problem-based learning into their units, giving students opportunities to demonstrate standards-aligned mastery within the context of real-world issues, for authentic audiences.

Resources supporting this work will begin appearing in this blog and the Its Learning site.

Stay tuned!
