This document will take you to the Social Studies' standards for grades 5-12. The bolded standards are the prioritized standards in each grade. A committee of grade 5-12 Social Studies' teachers collaborated to choose the priority standards and to ensure they were cohesive and built upon previous knowledge and skills in each grade. The priority standards are the more rigorous standards that will take more class time for students to achieve. The supporting standards are the remaining standards that must be taught in order to reach the priority standards.
This document will take you to the disciplinary literacy priority standards for Social Studies, as well as a table of research tasks that students will be working through, either through English, Social Studies, or a combination of both classes.
