•  Integrated SS/ELA Curriculum

    The integrated Social Studies/English Language Arts (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.   Following a continuous improvement model, the curriculum is updated annually.  The content of the curriculum is based on the New York State Social Studies Framework, integrates the Common Core Standards for Language Arts and Literacy in Social Studies/History, and uses an Understanding by Design template.
