I am a teacher who often gives professional development for other teachers.

We started school with the kids on 9-8. From 9-8 to 9-15, I taught my 7th graders how to write a paragraph. I modeled one, helped with one, and then they did one. Then they made a final copy of the helped or did alone paragraph. From 9-16 until tomorrow, I am teaching them the reading process I want them to use. We will have read 5 paragraphs. I have yet to teach anything related to social studies, although the paragraphs are vaguely related to the social sciences, but they won't know that until Monday.

Ah literacy....

Have you ever used the Comprehension Toolkit informational articles? There may be some good content for SS while you are also teaching reading skills.... Our SS teachers are now being held accountable for improving reading scores for the first time. The ELA teachers are rather pleased about that!
