Welcome to Humanities
“In SFUSD all English language arts and social studies classrooms provide high quality instruction for all our students in alignment with our SFUSD E/LA PK-12 Core Curriculum with embedded Common Core State Standards for Literacy. In addition, we believe that all our students must receive rich literacy experiences every year in every setting with every teacher, not merely in some years in some settings with some teachers.” –Humanities Team
The principles for the SFUSD E/LA PK-12 Core Curriculum are informed by the operating beliefs used in defining the role of central office which include the following:
Follow up with Summer Reading 2016
All teachers are encouraged to have students reflect on their summer reading using a variety of formats, many of which can be found in Appendix A: Alternatives to Book Reports. Assigning tasks such as these holds students accountable for completing their summer reading and also provides an opportunity for teachers to obtain diagnostic data regarding students’ oral language skills early in the academic year. Please note: it is important to provide a grace period (of two weeks, for example) for students who are new to the school or who were unable to complete the summer reading.
