Forgetting Social Studies (or not)

by stryson

This morning, I had the following exchange with a fourth grader:

“Mrs. Tryson, do you still teach Social Studies?”

“No.”

“Do you still know Social Studies?”

—-

It often amazes me how we take certain perspective or background knowledge, such as the fact that I wouldn’t forget all of the content of Social Studies just because I wasn’t teaching it, for granted.
