The audit process focused on the company`s social study documents, which contain „newspapers“ containing articles, activities and writing requests. In their statement from Pere, Studies Weekly`s management team found that a revised weekly unit would be sent to all clients who ordered the Grade 4 program in Florida, which includes an activity that invites students to argue for or against secession. „All of these themes are a concern for publishers of historical and social studies, because social awareness is an evolving way of thinking,“ the company said in an email to Education Week attributed to the management team.

Studies Weekly, Inc. is an innovative curriculum program for teaching 100 percent of the content standards of California`s K-6 social history. Weekly publications, attractive and user-friendly, make social studies interesting for students and teachers and are fun at an affordable price. „There are very few primary school teachers with a great background in the social sciences,“ Costello said. Most are specialists in reading or math. „Very, very, very few of them have either a minor or a minor in history,“ she said. „They tend to replicate what they`ve been taught.“ The introduction of Studies Weekly`s print and digital tools in California insinuates Weekly studies onto the list of approved vendors, so that 100 percent of HSS standards, analytical capabilities and California executives can be taught in the K-6 class with only one edition of students per week. Publications require minimal preparation and include 36 weekly units per class for 120-180 minutes of classes per week.
Walker`s daughter was commissioned last year in an issue of Studies Weekly, a national social studies publication that presents lessons on history, government and society in a newspaper format to be consumed week after week. The activity required them to write from the point of view of several actors of the civil war era, including an owner of a southern cotton plantation. Walker told the teacher that her daughter, who is black, would not do the job.
