The 2018 Social Studies Dream Team kickoff was a huge success!!! See what a few of the participating teachers have to say about why this experience is so important to them:

Mr. Ackerman, a World History and Sociology teacher from Roswell High School, is excited about participating because ” The curriculum will become rigorous and engaging.  It will encourage students to think, read, and act like historians, and the activities that we create will engage allCurrent Projects image of NM Social Studies Dream Team working and collaborating students.  It is a push away from the more traditional, teacher-led environment where students begin to take more ownership of their work. “

Ms. Vasquez, a New Mexico History teacher from The ASK Academy, wants everyone to “Imagine getting the opportunity to create engaging lesson plans for a subject that you love and know that the lessons will be shared with all New Mexico teachers. That is exactly the opportunity that I was given by being accepted as part of the Social Studies Dream Team.”

Ms. Wright, a New Mexico History teacher from Chaparral Middle School in Alamogordo, explains “The Dream Team is a big deal for our students, schools, and teacher-leaders because it provides us the opportunity and time to work collaboratively with other experts in our field of expertise to create eighteen cornerstone pieces.  These cornerstones will serve as exemplars for incoming, seasoned, and master teachers alike.”
