An effort to bring more social studies into a district's third-grade curriculum has produced an interactive map highlighting local landmarks and historical events. Susie Bailey, director of curriculum data and assessment for Washington Court House City Schools, worked with Washington High School history teacher Paul LaRue, whose students used mapping software and developed lessons for the third-graders. "As an educator, it's great to have something that meets everybody's needs, and hopefully we'll have more of these collaborations," LaRue said.
