DESCRIPTION:

For K-12 teachers, STEPS—Standard Themes for Educational Progress make the process of adapting California’s Social Studies Standards into their curriculum quick and easy.

Each STEPS manual has reorganized state-written learning objectives into teacher-friendly themes; therefore making adaptation faster and easier for the benefit of teachers, their students, and administrators.  

Social Science themes covered in the STEPS manual are listed below, and include a total of 7 learning strands, with 5 sub-strands. (Please click on Sample Pages for detailed information on the learning strands.)

Chronology
Geography & Movement
Knowledge, Culture & Beliefs
Event Analysis
Government & Citizenship
Economics
Reading & Writing Skills for History Social Science

Each manual was developed with feedback from California teacher focus groups and content-area experts with the intent of creating a user-friendly, high-impact resource for improved instruction, differentiation, and professional development.

Designed to hang like a calendar in any classroom or administrative office, each manual features text and tables that account for the number of objectives within each learning strand in the curriculum. (See sample pages.)  This evidences previously unidentified gaps in the learning progression and offers great opportunities for improving student achievement.

This STEPS manual covers K-12--thirteen grade levels at a glance!

Already active in Ohio in four content areas and 13 grade levels, the most recent district feedback indicates improvement on standardized test scores!

STEPS—Standard Themes for Educational Progress manuals are also available for California Science for the 1998 state Standards. California has adopted the new national Common Core Standards in Mathematics and Reading & Writing Across the Curriculum, manuals that are also available in the series.
