Integrated Curriculum (6th ELA/SS) Help

Hi all,
I have recently switched districts and will start this next year as a 6th ELA/Writing/SS teacher. I am new to the idea of having a 90 minute integrated ELA/SS/Writing block ... I have always had two different blocks for these subjects. I am struggling to figure out how to manage the 90 minutes when we have so many standards for all three of those subjects and such a short amount of time.

Has anyone had experience with an integrated curriculum like this? I have used the method of balanced literacy in the past and it worked very well and my students excelled in reading. I don't know if I can still do a form of balanced literacy in this integrated classroom with social studies.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
