      I would definitely focus on the CCSS skills for literacy as they relate to teaching social studies. The content is hugely important, but how they express that content and what they do with it, is hugely important. The CCSS standards in grade 6 for social studies can be found here.

      Whether or not you're a CCSS state, these college ready standards are great goals for your students for the year. I encourage sharing them and incorporating them into student assessments throughout the year.

      Good luck!
