Passport to Social Studies Overview



PS 98 utilizes the Passport to Social Studies Program and follows NYC K-8 Social Studies Scope and Sequence. In
Social Studies, students use rich content, unifying themes and big ideas to learn history, geography, economics,
civics, citizenship and government. Teachers incorporate literacy in social studies classes to help their students
ground reading, writing, and discussion in evidence from text utilizing Passport to Social Studies.


PS 98 has a joint program with Douglaston-Little Neck Historical Society. This program includes a walking tour of
parts of Douglas Manor and the Extension, and then a hands-on workshop where students would create
architectural drawing and construction of models based on the houses they viewed.
