About Our Social Studies Curriculum

Mamaroneck School District uses the Putnam/ Northern Westchester BOCES integrated Social Studies/ ELA curriculum.

The Integrated SS/ ELA Curriculum is a web-based, user-friendly curriculum developed by teachers from the Putnam/ Northern Westchester BOCES region and beyond. The curriculum development process was guided by expert social studies and technology consultants utilizing the Understanding by Design Framework. Following a continuous improvement model, the curriculum is updated annually.

Curriculum Alignment

The content of the curriculum is aligned to:

Balanced Literacy Connections

A strong literature component is one hallmark of this program. For each lesson, read-alouds are identified and annotated. Questioning strategies are presented. To support a balanced literacy classroom, teachers can access guided reading suggestions, ideas for using varied genre, and leveled book lists. Writing tasks ask students to compare and contrast, state a point of view, write persuasively, write a letter, and answer document-based questions.
