What are resources to help differentiate instruction for NYS social studies?

NYS social studies can be a difficult subject to teach with the immense amount of material that needs to be covered each year. There are a lot of places on the web that provide resources for NYS social studies teachers. Two of them are provided below:

I bet most NYS social studies teachers don’t realize that they can email their NYS board of education and actually get a reply from them. I taught social studies in NY for 5 years and I didn’t know that I could do this until recently. It would have saved me a lot of time during my planning. Using them as a resource can help you become a more effective NYS social studies teacher. You can find the email by going to http://www.p12.nysed.gov/ciai/aboutus.html and look under social studies.

Another great resource for NYS social studies is http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Kasha-Mastrodomenico. It follows the NYS core curriculum and standards. It offers differentiated instruction resources for NYS social studies. It contains the following resources:

What is the NYS Social Studies Core Curriculum?

The NYS Social Studies core curriculum is a guide for NYS social studies teachers that the New York State Board of Education demands are taught. The New York State Core Curriculum includes every grade level from k-12. It contains a nice spiral curriculum, adding knowledge to knowledge. With each piece of content is the theme, related standards and connections that can be made. The following is the site to find the New York State Core Curriculum: http://www.p12.nysed.gov/ciai/socst/pub/sscore1.pdf

A good site that will help NYS  social studies teachers plan for differentiated instruction lesson plans is my site http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Kasha-Mastrodomenico. I base my lessons and PowerPoints off of the NYS  social studies standards and core curriculum. Check it out!
