USOE CORE CURRICULUM
Council for the Social Studies defines social studies as "the
integrated study of the social sciences and humanities to promote
civic competence." For students to become fully empowered
participants in democracy, attention must be paid to this "civic
competence." The social studies -- including history, geography,
economics, political science, sociology, psychology, anthropology --
are central to the mission of public schools.
This web site is an effort to support educators, administrators,
students, and parents in understanding and implementing the social
studies core curriculum. In addition, we hope to make sure that
resources, lesson ideas, exemplary teaching, and outstanding
professional development opportunities are highlighted."
