Literacy in Social Studies

TCI’s elementary social studies curriculum incorporates key points from the ELA Common Core throughout our History Alive! program. As students progress each year, they climb a “staircase” of content that gradually grows more challenging in order to strengthen understanding of the topics at hand, including ideas represented in the Social Studies Common Core.

Literacy is an important component of any student’s education. That is why we have integrated it into all of our lesson-planning tools and resources in addition to ensuring that instruction meets the NCSS social studies standards.
