Social Studies Vision
All social studies classes at Laredo Middle School seek to expand skills and knowledge with regard to critical thinking, literacy, and historical investigation.
In order to achieve this, teachers utilize the following tools and strategies:
- Document Based Questions
- Hands-on activities
- Research projects
- Analyzing and deciphering complex texts
- Socratic Seminars
- Philosophical chairs
- Thinking Maps
Please see below for each grade level's specific information for the period(s) of history being studied and the Colorado Social Studies Academic Standards.
