The New Social Studies Framework Draft is on the November CT Board of Education Agenda! Now is the time to take a final look to make comments before the December meeting where we anticipate adoption.
Here is a link to the “final” draft, but there is still time for public review:
Oct 2014 Draft Social Studies Framework:
Please send any comments, ideas, suggestions, and your thoughts about whether the Board should adopt the Framework to:

Because Every Student Becomes a Citizen
We are teachers and advocates for the Social Studies who believe deeply that Social Studies is important in the lives of the students of the state of Connecticut and for our future as a democratic society. Therefore, we simply cannot let the fates determine if our future generations understand the duties and freedoms associated with being members of a democratic society, gain perspective on the world, or appreciate the sacrifices our parents made.
All of us need to work actively to give our students the learning experiences they need to join our ranks as educated and skilled members of our society.
We must work now to align our actions with our values.
Please take a look around the site, and JOIN US IN FIGHTING FOR THE SOCIAL STUDIES and FOR OUR STUDENTS.
