NV Social Studies Team

Since 2014, three social studies Instructional Specialists from New Visions for Public Schools, in consultation with a small group of teacher advisory board members from across our network of schools, have developed a strong scope and sequence for Global History and Geography I, Global History and Geography II, and US History and Government.  

Curricular materials are aligned with the New York State K-12 Social Studies Framework, the New York State Regents exams, as well as the Common Core Learning Standards. Through the investigation and analysis of primary and secondary sources, students have the opportunity to think critically, and to read, write, and speak like historians, while simultaneously honing the literacy and critical thinking skills necessary for both the New York State Regents exams and post-secondary coursework.

We believe the curricula we share here are never complete; we always welcome feedback, experiences, and findings from teachers using these materials!
