National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies (2010 edition)

NCSS announces the publication of the revised national curriculum standards for social studies: National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies: A Framework for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment

The revised standards, like the earlier social studies standards published in 1994, continue to be stuctured around the ten themes of social studies. However, the revised standards offer a sharper focus on:

  • Purposes
  • Questions for Exploration
  • Knowledge: what learners need to understand
  • Processes: what learners will be capable of doing
  • Products: how learners demonstrate understanding
  • The revised standards also include:

  • Enhancements in the descriptions of the ten themes and the associated learning expectations

  • The addition of new descriptions of standards-based class practices to time-tested descriptions that were included in the original edition of the standards
  • A stronger focus on student products and their assessment
  • An updated list of essential social studies skills and strategies, including literacy strategies
