Goal

My goal is to provide each student with a weekly social studies newspaper to enrich their knowledge of American history.  

 

What will be done with my students

I plan to use the Social Studies Weekly to supplement our core curriculum. Each week I will give the students a new copy to read and study together and independently. Each newspaper follows the 5th grade social studies standards that includes studying early Explorers, Jamestown settlers, the American Revolution, and Westward Expansion.  

 

Benefits to my students

The newspapers have a very reader friendly design and interesting facts of the time periods they teach about. They are also very good to help with teaching big Language Arts standards like finding main idea, summarizing, compare and contrast, etc. They also help teach financial literacy though history. For example we learn about production and trade through the early European explorers; starting your own business during the settling of America and taxes during the American Revolution.  

 

Describe the Students

My students standardized testing performance scores vary from low to high.
