The new social studies curriculum is intended to weave inquiry and literacy skills with course content in civics, geography, economics and history in a way that engages students to think critically and consider multiple perspectives.

Four teachers, Ronit Shapiro, Technology Coach; David Krauter, third-grade teacher; Laura Scott, fourth-grade teacher, and Katrina Streips, seventh-grade social studies teacher, joined Assistant Superintendent Dr. Kris Raitzer to discuss the social studies curriculum changes being implemented this year at the Board of Education meeting.
