Using the South Carolina Social Studies Support Document, this is a notebook that students can use for the duration of the year. Separated by standard, major topics, and indicators, this notebook has all of the essential to know information organized into convenient boxes. Also, each section includes a short assignment that can used for homework or in class. These assignments include analysis of political cartoons, quotes, charts, graphs, map skills, and point of view narratives.
This is a research based means of increasing student understanding (and test scores!) in Social Studies. Students will no longer lose time or focus due to writing notes. Teachers will spend less time lecturing and spend more time doing engaging activities!
