Social Studies

Welcome to Social Studies

  • The FWISD Social Studies Department provides a rigorous, differentiated, and relevant social studies curriculum with standards-aligned resources and assessments that gives instructional support to all campuses through a renewed focus on teacher knowledge and best practices.   

    The Social Studies department supports the District's mission of "preparing all students for success in college, career and community leadership" by promoting 

    • student-centered classrooms where content literacy and thinking skills development is emphasized over rote memorization of ideas, events, people, and places; 
    • student investigations of primary and secondary sources that promote meaningful interactions and contributes to deeper understanding of the content across time, space, and cultures; 
    • the use of formative and summative assessments that accurately reflect student learning and guide instruction; and
    • strategies to guide the development of reading, writing, and thinking skills.
