    Social Studies Teachers in California Now Have a Curriculum Framework

    Hurray!  The California State Board of Education approved the new California H-SS Curriculum Framework unanimously this afternoon.  To the very end, there were a large number of public comments, over 300 today alone. Many history-social science leaders have worked tirelessly and intelligence and dedication. As special THANK YOU to the Instructional Quality Commission and to Dr. Nancy McTygue, Director of the California History-Social Science Project and the incredible team of historians who worked so hard with you to research and verify the thousands of public comments. It simply could not have happened without the thousands of hours you spent. Thank you also to the H-SS Framework Committee of teachers selected from across that worked so hard and then saw your work embargoed to save money during the recession. Hopefully you are a joyous as the rest of us that finally your efforts have come to fruition.  

    Keep the tape on your textbooks a while longer. Very soon the materials development phase will start.

    Many teachers say that the professional development they get from Twitter is better than what they get through their schools—in part, they argue, because it offers opportunities for dialogue and continuous feedback from fellow educators that much school-provided PD does not. Many IECSS teachers have attended technology workshops by Liz Ramos and have come to agree with the above statement.
