THE PRENTICE APPROACH
SOCIAL STUDIES / HISTORY
Prentice’s Social Studies curriculum for grades 1 - 5 explores a curriculum aligned with the Common Core Standards. Students complete many project-based assignments, role playing activities, and discussions to show their understanding of the standards. Students learn about their community, citizenship and their local regions. They also study California, economics, and early American history and colonization.
Grades 6 - 8 are students also engage in group projects, class discussions, debates, and project-based assessments to show understanding of the standards. Students study geography, ancient civilizations and American History. This is also a time to practice note-taking, study skills, organization, self-advocacy, and application of assistive technology.
