Fourth Grade Social Studies is taught to the National Council for the Social Studies (U.S.) standards, covering history, economics, civics, and geography. Students will explore the four regions of the United States, learning about geography, history, and culture. We will examine each individual state's past and present, looking at its economics, natural resources, and government. Students will learn about each state's capital, largest cities, agriculture, indigenous people, landmarks, and what makes it unique.
I am currently enrolled in my final course through the Gettysburg College-Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History master of arts in American history program. In addition, I have bachelor of arts degrees in English, journalism, and political science. I was the director of a social justice center for three years during which time I routinely taught about and facilitated conversations about historical and current political events for both teen and adults participants. Before that, I was a newspaper editor and reporter for 15 years. I have been teaching history, social studies, and English Language Arts classes for the past five years. I am currently lead teacher at The Foster Woods Folk School, which focuses on education, storytelling, and the arts within an ecosocial justice framework aimed at celebrating and improving our connections as a global community of human and non-human earthlings. In this role, I work with learners of all ages with a primary focus of working with learners in grades three through 12.

As we study social studies, students may encounter descriptions and discussions of wars, colonization, disease, current events, and death. All subjects and topics will be covered in a manner that is as age-appropriate as possible, but some learners may be especially sensitive to these topics.
Materials will come from a myriad of sources including NewsELA, the Zinn Education Project, Learning for Justice, and the Council for Economic Education.
