Seeking Feedback on Middle School Social Studies Materials

A Message from the Department of Teaching and Learning

In a focused effort to increase Great Teaching with Strong Support in middle school (grades 6 to 8) social studies and core classes, the Bellingham Public Schools’ Middle School Social Studies Review Committee has been meeting since February. This 15-member committee includes teachers, a technology coach, an ELL Specialist and administrators. The group’s current task is to identify materials to consider for adoption to align our instruction to state Social Studies standards.

We will have a display of the instructional materials under consideration from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., May 11 to 18 (weekdays), and from 6 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 11 in the main floor lobby of the Central Services Building at 1306 Dupont Street. We invite you to come look at the materials and provide feedback.

Please contact Cathy Allred, curriculum secretary, at 676-6545 if you have questions.
