In this episode, we take a quick walkthrough of the specific Tennessee Academic Standards for Social Studies as they relate to social studies teaching and learning in grades K-5. We discuss where you can find the standards, how they are organized, the role of the SSP (Social Studies Practices) standards for K-2 & 3-5, and explore topics and content standards progressively found in each grade level.
