EngageNY.org 10 NY Social Studies Framework 3 Instructional Shifts Focus on Conceptual Understanding. Foster Student Inquiry, Collaboration, and Informed Action. Integrate Content and Skills Purposefully. 11
Instructional Shift #1: Focus on Conceptual Understanding From To Facts Concepts and ???? Content Knowledge Breadth of Topics
Depth within ???? Topics Recall Transfer ???? and Connections 12 Instructional Shift #2: Foster Student Inquiry, Collaboration, and Informed Action
From To Teacher as Disseminator Teacher as Facilitator ???? of Investigation Students Learn Facts from Textbook
Students Investigate the Social Sciences ???? Using Multiple Sources Students Retell Interpretations Students Construct Interpretations ???? and Communicate Conclusions 13
Instructional Shift #3: Integrate Content and Skills Purposefully FROM A Social Studies Classroom Where TO A Social Studies Classroom Where Students experience an additional nonfiction reading class or textbook focused instruction
Students learn to read, discuss, and write like social scientists Students develop literacy skills Students develop disciplinary and social studies practices literacy skills and social science separately practices in tandem Students learn content knowledge Students integrate and apply concepts, skills, and content knowledge
14 From the Field Memo March 3, 2015 Candace Shyer The content, skills, and social studies practices in the New York State K-12 Social Studies Framework must be built across grades K-12 for students to be successful on the social studies assessments required for a diploma. Instruction in ELA modules that incorporate social studies topics does not replace instruction in social studies, particularly in the development of social studies practices. All teachers of social studies in all grades should review the social studies practices, as well as the common core literacy
skills for their courses, and incorporate them, along with content, into their instruction. What do the shifts mean for instruction? For each shift discuss: What do I notice that is already in place? What is new? What are some next steps that can be taken? What are some barriers? Reminder of Shifts: Focus on Conceptual Understandings Foster Student Inquiry, Collaboration, and Informed Action .
Integrate Content and Skills Purposefully. 11 5 Points of Clarification: Commissioners Regulations changes, Social Studies Regents Exams, and Pathways Pathways & Assessment Changes 1.

Catholic Connection: Solidarity We are one human family. We are brothers and sisters even if we are different. We need to get along with each other. Solidarity means not fighting but helping others. We should love our neighbors all over the world. By the completion of Grade Four, the learner will: realize that the Lord calls each of us to live a life
