Following a year of collaborating and piloting with teachers and district leaders, Discovering Justice is rolling out a revised, open source, standards based civics curriculum for grades K-2. Children Discovering Justice (CDJ) 2.0 is now available on our website. Check it out HERE!
CDJ provides teachers with culturally responsive lesson plans, supporting activities, and flexible and manageable tools to engage students in rich civil discourse and action around issues of justice and equity in students' classrooms, community, and state. The curriculum focuses on key social studies content, practice, and literacy standards through interactive activities, explicit vocabulary supports, and videos of local leaders.
The Board of Elementary and Secondary Education met for their September meeting at 9 am. The agenda can be found online here; the video of the meeting here. The meeting started a bit late due to traffic.

The Board opened with public comment, much of which focused on the proposal to raise the MCAS score required to fulfill the state's competency determination for high school graduation.
Every year at this time we provide a packet of very important material relating to election of officers of the Association, MASC award nominations, volunteers to serve on MASC Committees, and resolutions for our Delegate Assembly in November. This is your chance to offer a nomination, propose a resolution, volunteer to serve, nominate a student for scholarship, or run for an MASC office. You may duplicate these forms if you wish to make multiple nominations in any category.
