Standards
Standards-based education is the process of basic teaching, learning and assessment that focuses on national, state, and local educational standards. Academic Content Standards are statements of what students are expected to know and be able to do at specified grade levels.

2011 Social Sciences Standards



Common Core State Standards for Literacy in History/Social Sciences


The 6-12 literacy standards for History/Social Studies are not meant to replace the content standards in the social sciences but rather to supplement them. The emphasis in the literacy standards is for students to learn to read and write in English Language Arts and to further develop reading and writing skills specific to social sciences’ content.
