COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Economics and Civics. Fourth grade students will learn about Florida history focusing on exploration and colonization, growth, and the 20th Century and beyond. Students will study
The important people, places, and events that helped shape Florida history.

The following pacing guide replaces the Competency-Based Curriculum for Social Studies as the required curriculum for grades K-12 in Miami-Dade County Public
Schools.

Please note the following important general information regarding the Pacing Guides:

   The Pacing Guides outline the required curriculum for social studies, grades K-12, in Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
   Social Studies Pacing Guides have been developed for all elementary grade levels (K-5) and for each of the required social studies courses at the middle and senior high school
    levels.
   The Social Studies Pacing Guides are to be utilized by all teachers, grades K-12, when planning for social studies instruction.
   The Pacing Guides outline the required sequence in which the grade level or course objectives are to be taught.
   The Pacing Guides outline the pacing in which instruction should occur. Specifically, the Pacing Guides are divided into 9 week segments and provide an estimate of the
    number of traditional or block days needed to complete instruction on a given topic. Teachers should make every effort to stay on pace and to complete the topics in a given
    nine weeks. Slight variations in pacing may occur due to professional decisions made by the teacher or because of changes in school schedules.
   NOTE: Content benchmarks that are highlighted in red are relevant to the Seventh Grade Civics End of Course Exam tested benchmarks.
   NOTE: Associated with each red highlighted benchmark is a link to a lesson plan (highlighted in yellow) complete with all readings, handouts, a detailed lesson plan, and a pre-
    post quiz to be used during instruction in order to emphasize the importance of relevant Seventh Grade Civics End of Course Exam tested benchmarks.

Each Social Studies Pacing Guide is divided into the following headings/categories to assist teachers in developing lesson plans:

   Grade Level or Course Title - The grade level and course title are listed in the heading of each page.
   Course Code - The Florida Department of Education Course Code is listed for the course.
   Topic - The general topic for instruction is listed; e.g., Westward Expansion.
   Pacing - An estimated number of traditional or block instructional days needed to complete instruction on the topic is provided.
   Strands and Standards – Strands and Standards from the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) are provided for each topic.
   Nine Week Grading Period - Grading periods (1-4) are identified.
   Essential Content – This critically important column provides a detailed list of content/topics and sub topics to be addressed during instruction.
   NGSSS-SS Benchmarks – This critically important column lists the required instructional Benchmarks that are related to the particular topic. The Benchmarks are divided into
    Content Benchmarks and Skill Benchmarks. These benchmarks should be identified in the teacher’s lesson plans.
   Instructional Tools - This column provides suggested resources and activities to assist the teacher in developing engaging lessons and pedagogically sound instructional
    practices. The Instructional Tools column is divided into the following subparts: Core Text Book, Key Vocabulary, Technology (Internet resources related to a particular topic),
