  Teachers needed to disaggregate proposed social studies standards

The South Dakota Department of Education is bringing together 56 teachers to disaggregate proposed social studies standards. The disaggregated (unpacked) standards will be posted as an appendix document. This document will be an optional resource for teachers to use in translating the proposed standards into instruction. It will provide teachers and the public with a deeper understanding of the proposed standards. If any of the proposed standards are changed in response to the Board of Education’s public hearings, changes will be reflected in the disaggregated work as well.

Workgroup members will be asked to incorporate the following elements in the disaggregated standards:

1. Know, Understand and Do statements
2. Student-friendly language
3. Skills of the C3 Framework
4. Connections to literacy
5. Opportunities for connecting to the Oceti Sakowin Standards
    Note: This element will be a priority for a separate workgroup,
    but the conversation can begin in this disaggregation workgroup.

Who should apply:
Teachers in grades K-12 are encouraged to apply, especially those in grades K-5.
Four teachers from each grade level K-8 will be selected. At the high school level, groups of four teachers will be chosen to disaggregate standards for each of the following areas: World History, U.S. History, World Geography, Civics/Government, and Economics courses.

Time commitment:
This will be a four-day process:

1. One-day meeting in Chamberlain on Feb. 5.
2. Up to four one-hour webinars with a facilitator and other group members.
3. Completion of work on your own, with a partner, or with the entire grade-level group.
4. Work will be completed by May 31, 2015.

How to apply:
Fill out this application by Jan. 9.
