The Social Studies Academy: Overcoming Opportunity Gap in the Social Studies Honors Program at Rowland High School

2. How can social studies teachers improve teaching strategies to fully engage learners and prepare them for honors coursework?
3. What placement policies can be modified or changed in order to increase student opportunities in social studies honors classes?
