How Outschool Works

In this full year ongoing social studies class, we will meet twice a week for thirty minutes. The students will be presented with a stand-alone individual lesson/activity in social studies that focuses on a general understanding of concepts that enable students to think critically about local, regional, national, and global issues. The overall social studies content is based upon five units of study Geography, Citizenship, Economics, Government, and History. Each individual lesson...
The student will develop a general understanding of Geography, Both physical and human features of a community.
As an elementary classroom teacher, I have taught social studies for many years. Providing knowledge and helping students to think critically about local, regional, national, and global issues through the study of citizenship, the role of the local government, symbols, branches of government and how citizens influence government. Along the way the students are building their reasoning skills and gaining a greater understanding of their world. I have seen young students grow and develop in global citizenship.
Students will be able to continue their assignments as needed from class.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
In assessing social studies standards, I will assess the students and complete informal assessments throughout the daily lessons. First, during the beginning of the lesson to assess their background knowledge. Then, during the middle of the lesson within small group instruction, and at the end assessing the students completed assignments and tasks.
1 hour per week in class, and no time outside of class.
The lessons in this curriculum reflect concepts from National Social Studies and History Standards (NCSS). These standards reflect an overall consistency of what could be presented at each grade level. The NCSS and Library of Congress developed digital resources for use in teaching social studies that demonstrates the effectiveness of teaching with primary sources and secondary resources. https://www.socialstudies.org/standards/national-curriculum-standards-social-studies-introduction
