The Massachusetts History and Social Science Frameworks were adopted in June, 2018. As we transition to the new standards you can expect to see:

  •  increased emphasis on civics at all grade levels

  • inclusion of standards that reflect the diversity of the United States and world cultures, with particular attention to the contributions of women and men of all ethnicities and backgrounds in  the United States and the connections among world cultures;

  • new Standards for History and Social Science Practice and questions to guide inquiry;

  • stronger attention to the intersection of history, social science, and literacy instruction, through the inclusion of literacy standards for history and social science;

  • expanded examples of primary sources representing significant texts, maps,  photographs, and works of art and architecture in the United States and world history;

  • new standards for financial literacy and news/media literacy.
