If you have not already heard, October is Historic Cemeteries Month! The most recent post on the Oregon Heritage Exchange Blog<https://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/2017/10/25/who-knew-sharing-cemetery-history-could-be-so-much-fun/> features the Friends of Jacksonville's Historic Cemetery and their popular living history event, Meet the Pioneers. Programs such as these really highlight the history that can be learned and shared in our local historic cemeteries. Don't forget to check the local historic cemeteries near you to see if they have any events this weekend, because in case you did not know, Halloween is less than a week away!

Your input is sought in reviewing the Draft 1 of the Oregon Social Sciences Standards revisions.  You will find the surveys at http://www.oregon.gov/ode/educator-resources/standards/socialsciences/Pages/2017-Draft-Standards.aspx.  You may review the standards by grade level or by content area.  We are asking for both your general perceptions about the standards and for specific edits to the standard statements.

You will notice that the standards include a new strand - Ethnic Studies.  This strand consists of standards that also appear in the civics and government, economics, financial literacy, geography, history, and Social Science Analysis strands.  The Ethnic Studies strand is meant to emphasize the kind of instruction that is expected in Oregon classrooms.  The strand will also provide a home for the work that will be coming from the HB 2845 committee.  It will also support the curriculum work from SB 13 from Oregon's nine federally recognized tribes.

Results from these Draft 1 standards surveys will be used to make changes in the drafts.  Schools and districts should not align curriculum or instruction to the Draft 1 standards at this time.  A second round of surveys will be made available to review any changes made in Draft 1 standards.

If you have questions or concerns about the surveys, please contact me, Andrea Morgan at 503-947-5772 or at andrea.morgan at state.or.us<mailto:andrea.morgan at state.or.us>.

The Draft 1 surveys will be available until November 30, 2017.

Thank you for interest in Social Sciences education in our state.
