The Hillside School uses science and social studies instruction as a vehicle to teach critical reading and thinking skills necessary for understanding factual information. Teachers plan skill and strategy-development lessons using the framework of Pennsylvania Department of Education standards for science and social studies at each grade level. The emphasis is placed on acquisition of strategies through child-centered learning. This makes “how to learn” as important as “what to learn”.
