What Do You Know?

A graphic organizer can help you see the relationship among themes, disciplines, and the concepts and processes taught. Use the Graphic Organizer (PDF) to review the NCSS themes and corresponding academic disciplines, then list social studies concepts you teach that relate to each theme and discipline.

Reflect on Your Work

After you have completed the graphic organizer, review your answers and consider the following questions:

  • How was this similar to or different from the way you organize your curriculum?
  • How can NCSS themes and disciplines guide your teaching?
