K-5 Social Studies Curriculum Survey
In response to teacher participants in recent professional development sessions, the Emerging America program of the Collaborative for Educational Services is drafting a K-5 curriculum to address the 2018 Massachusetts History and Social Science (HSS) Framework. These self-contained units aim to meet the needs of elementary school teachers for content-rich, inquiry-based lessons that address the major content topics and Practice Standards of the 2018 HSS Framework. Each set of lessons will be organized around a central question of student investigation.

Your response to this survey will help shape these materials and ensure that they are necessary and useful.
