 Vocabulary Words that will help

  • Crosswalk (

  • Unpacking (

  • Revised Blooms Taxonomy ( 

  • Once the 2nd Grade Social Studies Standards were viewed by taking a crosswalk, they were then unpacked and created from the revised bloom taxonomy. They seem to be more specific and appropriate for the 2nd grade. They seem to be a better road map for teachers to follow when preparing their lessons of instruction. Common Core is on its way! As Educators we need to prepare ourselves for these new standards in every way that we can
