In self-contained social studies, the goal is to improve students’ knowledge of history while teaching students life skills such as research, reading comprehension, map analysis, and organization. All skills are aligned with the New York State standards and Common Core Standards in reading and writing. Each student’s social studies education will be tailored to his/her IEP goals and individual needs.
