Living in an ever-increasing interconnected world, the Social Studies department at Concept Schools is always looking for ways to incorporate other subjects skills into our classrooms. This year the Social Studies teachers will be using a calendar system to support English teachers by focusing on six key strategies. The goal is to help improve students’ reading ability by teaming up with the English teachers so that students are able to strengthen theses skills across multiple contents. For more information and specific strategies follow the link: http://english.conceptschools.org/disciplinary-literacy.

Below are the focus strategies for the 2015-2016 school year.
