History–Social Studies Standards and Framework

San Diego Unified began full implementation of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History–Social Sciences, and Technical Subjects during the 2014–15 school year. The standards are available here.

The curriculum developed to guide the study of specific times and places in history is governed by the History–Social Science Framework for California Public Schools, available here. The content standards defined in that document provide essential guidelines for student learning across the TK–12 history–social sciences course of study.

The instructional shifts in the 2016 framework are explained in the RELY module, available on the district’s website.

The College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards is available here.
