Social Studies Group- Special Curriculum Session I

The Social Studies group had a very productive afternoon. To date: the 1st grade is 75% complete and they anticipate completing the rest it tomorrow afternoon. The group has continued to work on completing the drafting by design/big idea forms for the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and they are now all complete. The group hopes to complete the rest of the MYP (through grade 10) tomorrow afternoon as well. Social Studies have three units left to write: (one for the 7th grade and two for the 8th grade).
There's also some general housekeeping left to do and they believe that they can get through all of this by Thurs. afternoon.
There are currently no mapping or units written for the 12th grade (elective year) as they differ to some degree year to year.
Barring any unexpected additions, Social Studies hope to complete the 1st draft late Thurs. afternoon or Friday afternoon.
