Interweaving Wisconsin Studies: A Curriculum Guide

This recently revised curriculum guide aligns instructional resources with The Wisconsin Model Academic Standards. The original writing group was composed of fifteen 4th grade instructors from the Madison Metropolitan School District. Consultation and support was generously provided by The State Historical Society of Wisconsin - Office of School Services. Historical eras are presented with content foci, appropriate resources, relevant standards for 4th and 8th grades, and a list of all supplemental materials referenced. This is a work in progress and should grow with the knowledge of additional resources and the readers' passion and creativity for making additional connection with the content identified within the standards.
