Over the years, we have heard that our formerly published annual lower grade Social Studies Notes contained overlapping information from year to year. While our goal has simply been not to leave anything out, thus carrying some relevant information over from year to year, we understand that our repeat customers do not want to pay for the same information over and over. To remedy this, in 2014, we decided to separate the annual Social Studies topic from the core information as much as possible, making two separate books. Instead of Social Studies Notes, the two books we are offering are called, Social Studies Core Concepts and Social Studies Focus (annual). The Core Concepts book reflects materials from the 4th-8th grade textbooks. The Social Studies Focus books are updated annually to fit the topic that is released at UIL Capital Conference in July. Note, if this topic happens to cover a few Core Concepts, there may be slight overlap for good measure, but there will no more identical, year-to-year overlap. We think you will enjoy this fresh, new format and we appreciate your feedback -- the inspiration behind these two unique, new products!
