The Social Studies Academy: Overcoming Opportunity Gap in the Social Studies Honors Program at Rowland High School

Rowland High School Logo

Through UCLA TIIP Grant funds, teachers explored the following key questions:

1. What current research can help social studies teachers better understand the achievement gap and understand educators’ role in maintaining the status quo?

2. How can social studies teachers improve teaching strategies to fully engage learners and prepare them for honors coursework?

3. What placement policies can be modified or changed in order to increase student opportunities in social studies honors classes?
