10 Dropped POs Open up the Crosswalk (Old to New). Scroll through the strand that interests you. Count the POs with N/A
11 Dropped POs Scroll to the end of the Crosswalk. You’ll see the new POs listed by strand.
12 New POs Open the New to Old Crosswalk. Look for the new POs here.
13 Priorities Refer to either the New to Old Crosswalk or look at the TUSD Social Studies Standard. Select 5 or so POs that you think are critical for students to know within your strand. Consider the language of the PO. Do you prefer the language of the new Standard or the old Social Studies Standard?
