Multigrade

NAD

So.S.M.A.R.T

The Social Studies Multigrade Implementation and Organizational Notebook (So.S.M.A.R.T.) is an organization manual produced by the North American Division that responds to the needs of teachers who have been challenged to complete a social studies textbook, particularly when teaching multiple grades. Topics for grades 1-4 have been correlated with those of grades 5-8, allowing a teacher with combined grades to teach the same topic across levels.
