District Adopts New Social Studies Curriculum
Two different publishers have been selected to provide the new Social Studies curriculum for the coming school year.
A Bethel district committee chose textbooks by Pearson for the K-5 and 9th grade curriculum, and textbooks by Teachers Curriculum Institute for grades 6-8 and 10-12.
Each of the two publishers had different strengths for the History and Geography curriculum, so the committee decided to mix and match the best textbooks for each grade level.
The new curriculum – made possible by the Bethel bond measure – will be in all Bethel classrooms this fall.
