CCSSO is committed to ensuring every child, across all backgrounds, graduates ready for college, careers, and life. The Social Studies collaborative focuses on identifying, developing, and sharing high-quality educational resources that support student and professional learning through rigorous standards, engaging curriculum, balanced assessments, effective professional development and attention to equity. Members of the Social studies collaborative tend to be state specialists for social studies within the state education agency.


2018-2019 Goals:

-Work on briefs that promote importance of social studies education.

-Develop a toolkit to assist SEAs in the common challenge of getting social studies taught in elementary schools.

-Begin construction of a bank of high-quality social studies instructional resources (lessons, units, assessments, professional learning workshops).

-Develop a rubric to evaluate the quality of social studies resources.

-Develop a walkthrough tool for school administrators and others who supervise social studies educators.
