Everyone that teaches U.S. History in Texas knows that the TEKS are completely mixed up and many times out of order as presented by the state. One TEK could span 100 years or more. When I was teaching this subject, I longed for a document that would take all reporting categories and put them in chronological order.
When I became my district's social studies curriculum coordinator, I made it my number one priority to create a scope and sequence that was completely chronologically based. This allows teachers to work through the TEKS in a systematic chronological manner (the way history is taught).
This scope and sequence includes a week by week pacing guide divided into nine weeks, although it could very easily be adapted to be a six week guide. The scope and sequence/ weekly guide allows for four weeks of STAAR review.
