Feedback Needed for Social Studies Textbook Adoption
Textbooks are vital tools within the realm of curricular and instructional support. The Curriculum and Instruction (C&I) department is reviewing Social Studies textbooks to adopt for the 2022-2023 academic year. The Social Studies instructional materials will be evaluated on the following criteria: layout, content, literacy, assessment and progress monitoring, technology and professional development.
The C&I team viewed the digital platform and proposals from eight publishers and narrowed the selection down to two vendors. The two finalists, Savvas Learning and McGraw- Hill presented their instructional resources to the Social Studies Textbook Committee today.
We are asking RGSD parents, students and staff to review the Social Studies presentations and to provide feedback on which resource best fits the Riverview Gardens School District curriculum. After reviewing the community and stakeholder feedback, an official recommendation will be presented to the Special Administrative Board.
This is a great opportunity for the RGSD community to have a voice in what tools are used to educate the scholars in RGSD.
