Connecting Literacy and Social Studies Through a Text Set - Kim Heckart

Elementary educators: looking to integrate social studies and literacy using K-12 Primary Source Text Sets? Check out this video! Learn about bundling standards, centering learning on inquiry, using a balance of primary and secondary sources, and ways to communicate conclusions and take action. Social studies best practices are intertwined with literacy to allow teachers to pique students’ curiosity, provide for high levels of engagement, and create opportunities for students to become actively engaged citizens. The K-12 Primary Source Sets are open-sourced and free for downloading at the State Historical Society of Iowa website.
