Breaking Down the Social Studies Standards

The purpose of this workshop, Breaking Down the Social Studies Standards: Incorporating Geography Every Day, is to assist Tennessee’s teachers in effectively implementing the new history and geography social studies standards. With the introduction of the new social studies standards for all K-12 courses and the continued focus on Common Core Standards, the Tennessee Geographic Alliance is providing geography instruction, lesson plans and activities to assist teachers at all levels in incorporating geography into their social studies courses as mandated by the new standards.
