Welcome Back to School
Welcome back to school, Social Studies leaders. We hope you had a restful summer and are ready to hit the ground running. With all of the issues emanating from Washington DC, this is a great time to teach controversial issues in your Social Studies classroom. Listenwise https://listenwise.com/current_events updates their current events page daily and offers a free service that aligns Social Studies content standards with National Public Radio stories. The Constitutional Rights Foundation offers a Civil Conversation model and lesson library http://www.crf-usa.org/t2t/curriculum-library for helping students learn to discuss controversial issues. Newsela https://newsela.com/ also curates current events in a searchable database. What are some of the ways you plan on including current events in your Social Studies instruction this year?

I am super excited for this coming school year! I spent my summer doing advance reading so that I can have some background and general knowledge about the subjects that I will be taking. I actually want my school year to become more productive and meaningful by making sure that I will join different school activities and school clubs as well. But, just so you know, I felt more excited after seeing the list you posted here so I would like to thank you for that. I hope you will continue to make our life convenient through your posts.
