What is Social Studies?

This course draws upon
a statement from the
National Council of Social Studies (NCSS):

“Teaching social studies begins with a deep knowledge and understanding of the subject and its unique goals.

Social studies programs prepare students to identify, understand, and work to solve the

 challenges facing our diverse nation in an increasingly interdependent world. Education for citizenship should help

 students acquire and learn to use the skills, knowledge, and attitudes that will prepare

them to be competent and responsible citizens throughout their lives. Competent and responsible citizens are informed and

 thoughtful, participate in their communities, are involved politically, and exhibit moral and civic virtues."

10 Themes of Social Studies

Social Studies Standards Strands



**Themes Activity 


The Sioux Falls School District’s elementary social studies curriculum is guided by the
South Dakota state standards. These standards define for all students what they must know in the following strands: US History, world history, geography, civics (government), and economics.

The curriculum integrates a text with literature and other resources to make learning more relevant and meaningful

Einstein's 55 Minutes

Questioning Strategies

 

"If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution," Einstein said,

"I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask,

for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes."

An instructor who has mastered when and how to ask questions
can create learning situations that build confidence
for all of those groups while covering subject matter more efficiently.

Use a K-W-L teaching technique to engage students from the beginning of a reading lesson by activating prior knowledge. The K-W-L technique also helps you keep students interested as students think about what they want to know and what they have learned. K = What do I know about subject x? W = What do I want to know about subject x? L = What did I learn about subject x?

PROJECT-BASED LEARNING

5 Step Blueprint for Designing Great Social Studies Projects

by Pat Fredshaw on October 6, 2016

 

One of the purposes of PBL is that students have
“real world” experiences of self-directed inquiry, collaboration, and communication
– skills that will bode them well in the world of work, so much of which today is project-based.

A Paradigm Shift for Educators

It is difficult for educators, particularly those who have been in their professions for years, to make the shift from being in control of educational delivery to being more of a facilitator of the learning process. Being a facilitator means giving up total control, and this is difficult for many. The resistance has meant that technology has been slow to be implemented in the classroom; it has meant that moving students toward self-direction has been slowed. But three things must be remembered here:

 

  • Students are far more invested in their learning when they are in charge of it and when they see value in learning independently.
  • PBL means that students will retain what they have learned far better and will gain valuable experience in inquiry-based learning, rather than contrived teacher-directed learning, which is not translatable to the real world.
  • PBL means that students are far better prepared to enter the new workforces of the 21st century with both the hard and soft skills necessary to be successful.

CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT

Mentor Not Punish

 

1. Rules: Establish and teach classroom rules to communicate
expectations for behavior.
If possible, have the class help create the rules.
2. Routines: Build structure and establish routines to help guide students in a wide variety of situations. 3. Praise: Reinforce positive behavior, using praise and other means.

"They don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."
4. Misbehavior: Consistently impose consequences for misbehavior.

BE CONSISTENT!
5. Engagement: Foster and maintain student engagement by teaching interesting lessons
that include opportunities for active student participation.

 

 

Rules and Procedure

Teachers need to distinguish between rules and procedures. There should be

less than 5 rules in a classroom which govern behavior (e.g. respect others).
There can be many procedures (e.g. passing papers, using computers, turning in homework) which should be taught as the need arises.
All rules and procedures should be reviewed throughout the year. We all forget sometimes. The review is as much for the teacher as it is for the students.

*Tips For Classroom Management -

 

*Build Community

*Design a Safe, Friendly, and Well-Managed Classroom Environment

*Include Students in Creating Rules, Norms, Routines, and Consequences

*Always Be Calm, Fair, and Consistent

*Know the Students You Teach

*Address Conflict Quickly and Wisely

*Integrate Positive Classroom Rituals

*Partner with Parents and Guardians

POVERTY IN AMERICA

 

Frontline - Poor Kids
53 minutes
Frontline spent months following young children in Iowa who are growing up against the backdrop of their families' struggles against financial ruin. At a time when one in five American kids live below the poverty line. "Poor kids" is an intimate portrait of the economic crisis as it's rarely seen, through the eyes of children.

Write down 3 things about the situations
of the children living in poverty in the video.


**********************
Poverty in Sioux Falls

Homeless Advisory Board

 

Across the United States...

  • The average age of a homeless person in the United States is 7 (yes, 7).
  • The typical homeless family is a single, 20-year-old mother
    with two preschool children.
  • One in 45 children in the United States - 1.6 million children - were living on the street, in homeless shelters or motels, or doubled up with other families last year, according to the National Center on Family Homelessness.
    • This is up 33% since 2007
  • Close to 700,000 people are homeless
    on any given night in America.
  • Children under the age of 8 are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population now comprising over 50%.
  • Statistically, 10% of any city's homeless population
    can be considered chronically homeless.

Marazono's Webinar - The Highly Engaged Classroom | Presented by Margaret McInteer
Novice and veteran teachers alike are always challenged with the goal of keeping students engaged. This webinar, based on the book of the same title, will review the research on classroom engagement and then provide perspectives and strategies to help teacher meet these challenges. The book, thus the Webinar, organizes the complex topic of engagement into four critical areas:
  • Student emotions (How do I feel/)
  • Student interest (Am I interested?)
  • Student perceptions of importance (Is this important?)
  • Student perceptions of efficacy (Can I do this?)
Specific recommendations and resources will be offered in each of the four areas. These will include strategies that could be applied immediately as well as strategies that, when used over time, contribute to the development of “highly engaged classrooms.”
