She is kind, generous, and SO KNOWLEDGABLE about math and science. I couldnt have chosen a better counterpart. Social Studies Field Testing: Elementary Social Studies is currently in the adoption process to ensure that materials are standardaligned and modern in their approach. Materials undergo an intensive, evidence-based review process that usually includes student field-testing. As part of the process, our class has been invited to fieldtest the Social Studies materials and lesson this school year. What does this mean for your child?

Our class may be covering topics that differ from our peers. Our pacing of topics may be quicker, as field-testing concludes the end of February. Our input matters. Our class will have a say in making sure social studies is standard-aligned, modern in its approach, and inclusive to all. To learn more about the curriculum adoption process go to: https://www.issaquah.wednet.edu/academics/adoption For questions, please contact Dawn Harper, Elementary Social Studies Specialist for the Issaquah School District. Her email is: [email protected] Fifth Grade Social Studies: Fall This fall our class will be focusing on the big idea of US First People, Encounter and Colonization in Social Studies. US First People, Encounter and Colonization: In this inquiry, students investigate the reasons

Europeans first came to North America, their impact on the indigenous people, and how the development of trade affected the land and people. The compelling question Was America the land of opportunity during the colonial period? asks students to examine the relationship of all people involved from multiple perspectives. As they complete this inquiry, students use evidence from primary and secondary sources to defend their responses.
