The research question discussed in this project was: how can an unbiased social studies curriculum for second grade be developed that is aligned with the MN State Social Studies Standards? It chronicles one educator’s creation of a social studies curriculum unit plan based on citizen and government as its area of focus. It is aligned with the MN State Standards for Social Studies for Second Grade. The author cites the details of the unit and uses research that is pertinent to the creation and development of the unit. This unit includes a scope and sequence, and includes a variety of lessons that encompass differentiation, is free from biases, promotes student engagement, and encourages shared multiple perspectives.
