CMs will understand why incorporating literacy is essential for executing rigorous social studies instruction. CMs will revise LTPs to include relevant ELA/Reading standards. CMs will develop and practice literacy-based strategies for the social studies classroom. CMs will unpack the ELA framework and Common Core State Standards to discover connections between the two content areas. CMs will leave this session with (1) a revised lesson plan that includes literacy instruction in all components of the lesson cycle and (2) a tool-belt of engaging literacy strategies to use at the daily level.
