Social Studies

At Teller we embed social students standards, topics, and texts in our literacy units. We choose texts that address topics related to history, civics, and geography, and then provide students with opportunities to engage in academic discourse about these topics. Additionally, we strive to ensure that the experiences of our students and their families and ancestors are reflected in the books, articles, and poetry that we read together. Finally, we create opportunities for every student to develop and act on their own ideas around social justice, marginalized communities, and diverse societal perspectives, as explained in our vision principals.
