Introducing, myWorld Social Studies, Savvas’s new program connecting Social Studies content and literacy instruction. myWorld Social Studies supports both Social Studies and literacy with instruction that is streamlined, flexible and attuned to today’s classroom. Our innovative digital instruction is seamlessly integrated, providing a blended program that is engaging, effective and easy to use.
Make learning meaningful! We connect to students’ emotions through stories, preparing them to learn, focusing on Social Studies content while reinforcing literacy instruction. To spark students’ interest the class engages in a meaningful discussion around the Big Question and views a video related to the question. Built in literacy instruction is aligned to the Common Core Standards for literacy and supports students of varied abilities.
Bring Social Studies content to life! Students experience content through engaging digital courseware, interactive student work texts and hands-on activities. Our innovative materials are seamlessly integrated, providing a blended program that is engaging, effective and easy to use. Interactive Student Worktexts facilitate instruction and reinforce new skills and concepts. Digital courseware incorporates activities that have students thinking and doing and out of their seats. Hands-on activities foster cooperative learning while stimulating student’s curiosity.
Apply new skills across the curriculum! Students are actively engaged by discussing, writing, and applying what they are learning. Students demonstrate understanding by writing stories based on each chapter’s content and current events. Using a unique digital storytelling tool, structured writing assignments tie together your Social Studies, literacy instruction, and 21st Century Skills in a way no other program can. Unlike typical assessments, students apply what they have learned to produce personalized content that demonstrates deep understanding.
