Curriculum

An effective social studies curriculum integrates history, geography, economics, political science, other social sciences and humanities in order to prepare students to be participating citizens. Specifically, social studies:

  • Helps students develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for themselves and for the common good;
  • Prepares students for their role as citizens and decision makers in a diverse, democratic society;
  • Enables students to learn about significant people, places, events and issues in the past in order to understand the present;
  • Fosters students' ability to act responsibly and become successful problem solvers in an interdependent world of limited resources. (2009 SS Academic Content Standards)

Ohio’s social studies content standards:

  • Set high expectations and provide strong support for social studies achievement by all students;
  • Represent the social studies knowledge and skills needed to make a successful transition to post-secondary education, the work place and civic life;
  • Are informed by national standards documents;
  • Balance knowledge, conceptual understanding and skill development;
  • Address significant understandings that are the basis for sound decision-making as citizens;
  • Focus on important social studies topics;
  • Represent a rigorous progression across grades and in-depth study within each grade;
  • Serve as the basis for classroom and statewide assessments; and
  • Guide the development of local social studies curricula and instructional programs.
