we know that time is a precious commodity these days.
The newest addition to the Homeschool Supercenter's NEW Social Studies Kits by Pearson/Scott Foresman can help you make the most of the time you have.
Scott Foresman Social Studies is designed to engage your child so they actively experience the world in which they live.
-Lessons provide multiple ways to experience the content to personalize learning to fit your child
-The Teacher's Edition includes detailed lesson plans to engage your child through a 3-step instruction process
-Essential Questions help your child see the "big ideas" and engage your child in an active discussion to develop critical thinking skills
-Lessons emphasize true understanding, not just memorizing facts, dates, and places - your child will be able to apply what they learned and transfer their knowledge to new situations, ideas, and their daily lives.
The Scott Foresman Social Studies program is designed along a Connect, Experience, Understand model. Connecting is all about activating prior knowledge and jumpstarting your child's journey into social studies.
Essential Questions - These guiding questions engage them in an active discussion of what they already know about the topic, but also encourage them to think further.
Scott Foresman Social Studies offers a variety of ways for your child to actively experience social studies through hands-on activities. They will learn to think critically about key concepts while experiencing the content.
Finally, your child will have a complete understanding of the material.
Developing true understanding means that your child won't simply memorize facts, dates, and places. It means taking what he/she has learned and transferring that knowledge to new content, situations, ideas, and to his/her own lives. The goal is to help children become successful learners who will remember not only what they have learned, but how to learn more!
Providing multiple ways to experience the content allows parents to personalize learning to fit their child's learning style.
Each Student Edition is divided into 6 units with each unit broken into daily lessons with an assessment and review at the end of each unit. This will allow parents to easily assess their child's pace throughout the course and adjust the speed to fit individual learning styles.
Each section is illustrated with colorful graphics and a fun narrative style without distractions that will keep children engaged and motivated.
At the beginning of the book is a Social Studies Handbook covering a number of skills and themes that will be presented throughout the course.
The Teacher's Edition includes planning guides for preparing lesson plans. These cover all materials for each unit, a complete listing of selections, and assessment options for measuring your child's understanding of the material.
The Chapter Planning Guide provides an overview of the lessons, pacing, main ideas, vocabulary, resources, and options for personalizing instruction.
The accompanying Workbook provides exercises and activities for your child including vocabulary practice, lesson reviews, and projects. These exercises align with the Student Edition to develop and reinforce the skills your child is learning. At the end of each unit is a review section to assess your child's comprehension.
Pearson creates education materials for all types of learners. When creating a program, we ensure that the material will be accessible to as many students as possible and as such, we create many ancillary products to fit specific situations to meet a variety of needs. While there are many components to each of our overall educational programs, some of these ancillaries do not meet the needs of homeschoolers, others do not make sense in a homeschool environment and some require an expensive technological infrastructure to deploy. The homeschool product configurations, while selected from a larger program, are complete curriculum bundles designed for your children to be engaged and to thrive, while being mindful of your budget. It is important to note that at times there will be resources mentioned throughout your materials that are not included in your package, however this will not hinder your child's successful completion of the course.
