Social Studies for English Learners
The goal of the projects is to provide support for intermediate and above English Learners in History-Social Science, especially in the comprehension of primary sources. The enclosed sample activity is an example, not a template.
Participant projects need to have the following:
- One or more primary sources
- Vocabulary support as needed
- A classroom activity to build comprehension of and/or application of the primary source.
- History-Social Science Content Standards addressed by the lesson
These activities may be drawn from the strategies shared at the workshop or other strategies that you have used effectively in class.
The projects need to be written in Microsoft Word and submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or on CD (if visuals make the file size too large to receive by email) to Peg Hill, Director SCORE H-SS, San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools, 601 North E Street, San Bernardino, CA 92410. All sources need to be cited.
Draft projects will be reviewed at the September 30th meeting. Email or call (909-386-2611) Peg if you have questions or concerns.
