NYS Social Studies Introduction: Framework, Curriculum, Assessment

NYS K-12 Social Studies Introduction: Framework, Curriculum, Assessment

This video is part of a series designed to support and equip teachers and instructional leaders with information and updates regarding Social studies. Each video provides a brief overview to consider in light of the new NYS Social Studies Framework, upcoming resources, and the new Regents exams in Social Studies. The videos might be used individually or together to support ongoing professional development.

The presentation was given by Greg Ahlquist, 2013 New York State Teacher of the Year, at the Network Team Institute in March 2015, where educators gathered from across the State for professional development. Ahlquist also served on the Content Advisory Panel for the development of the Framework, and teaches at Webster Thomas High School.
