Social Studies Curriculum Update
As was shared on March 5th, as well as in previous announcements in the Monday Minute and Leadership Memo, the adopted 2020 Colorado Academic Standards are leading to some changes in Jeffco units of study. When teachers load their YAAG’s (Year-at-a-Glance) next year, there will be some noticeable differences. Today we are going to provide some more details relating to the changes in Social Studies across K-12.
Revisions Applicable to All Grades in Social Studies:
Units of Study and Year-at-a-Glance documents should be available in Bridge to Curriculum following the regular timeline with everything being visible by the end of May. Proficiency scales and resources will be uploaded over the course of June and will continue into the 2020-2021 school year. Minor changes and adjustments to units will continue to occur next year as well based on teacher feedback and revision teams. We are excited to share this work with everyone in Jeffco and look forward to feedback and implementation. We also want to take a moment to thank the teachers that have partnered with Social Studies to accomplish this work this year. Our teacher teams have rolled up their sleeves to prioritize evidence outcomes, create proficiency scales, and pilot new units of study. Thank you for all of your hard work and partnership!
