Be sure to check out the over one hundred model Social Studies curriculum maps featured on NYLearns. Based on the new social studies framework released by NYSED last spring, NYLearns’ social studies curriculum maps are packed with key ideas, conceptual understandings, content specifications, and references to specific Common Core Standards.
You can find the new social studies curriculum maps by visiting My Curriculum in your My NYLearns section once you’ve logged in. Use the NYLearns Model Common Core Maps tab and select “Social Studies” in the Subject Area box to find the right map for your classroom.
Also coming in April, we’ll have standards-aligned educational resources and assessments for every social studies curriculum map. Until then, you can use the current framework as a template to add your own resources or assessments when necessary.
