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.
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.
