MISSISSIPPI COLLEGE- and CAREER-READINESS STANDARDS for the Social Studies2018Various sets of standards and standards-related documents were used in the development of theMississippi College- and Career-Readiness Standards for the Social Studies, including: National Council for the Social Studies: College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework forSocial Studies State Standards: Guidance for Enhancing the Rigor of K-12 Civics,Economics, Geography, and History National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) Framework for Civics, Economics,Geography, and U.S. History ACT College- and Career-Readiness (CCR) Benchmarks National Standards for History Education National Standards for the Social Studies National Standards for Economic Education National Standards for Civics and Government, and National Standards for Geography6Acknowledgements

MISSISSIPPI COLLEGE- and CAREER-READINESS STANDARDS for the Social StudiesIntroductionMission StatementThe Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) is dedicated to student success, which includesimproving student achievement in the social studies, equipping citizens to solve complexproblems, and establishing fluent communication skills, while preparing students for college,career, and civic life. The Mississippi College- and Career-Readiness Standards (CCRS) provide aconsistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to know and be able to do by theend of each grade level or course. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the realworld, reflecting the knowledge and skills that students need for success in college and careersand allowing students to compete in the global economy.PurposeThis document is designed to provide districts and K-12 social studies teachers with a basis forcurriculum development. In order to prepare students for careers and college, it outlines whatknowledge students should obtain, and the types of skills students must master upon successfulcompletion of each grade level. The 2018 MS CCRS for the Social Studies reflect nationalexpectations while focusing on postsecondary success, but they are unique to Mississippi inaddressing the needs of our students and teachers. The standards’ content centers around threepractices: conceptual understanding, fostering inquiry, collaboration and action, and integration ofcontent skills. Instruction in these areas is designed for a greater balance between content andprocess. Teachers are encouraged to transfer more ownership of the learning process to students,who can then direct their own learning and develop a deeper understanding of the social studiesand the problem-solving process. Doing so will produce students that will become more capable,independent, and literate adults.ImplementationThe 2018 MS CCRS for the Social Studies will be piloted during the 2018-2019 school year andimplemented during the 2019-2020 school year.7Introduction

MISSISSIPPI COLLEGE- and CAREER-READINESS STANDARDS for the Social Studies 2018STRANDSThe different content strands in social studies combine to give a clear picture of the past andpresent. Strands also give depth to the social studies curriculum, enabling students to grasp thecomplexity of events from the past and present and help them acquire critical thinking skills tomake informed decisions in the future. The 2018 Mississippi College- and Career-ReadinessStandards for the Social Studies is comprised of five (5) essential content strands: Civics, CivilRights, Economics, Geography, and l RightsEconomicsCivics StrandThe civics strand should provide students with a basic understanding of civic life, politics, andgovernment. It should help them understand the workings of their own and other politicalsystems as well as the relationship of American politics and government to world affairs. Civicsinstruction provides a basis for understanding the rights and responsibilities of citizens inAmerican constitutional democracy and a framework for competent and responsibleparticipation. The civics strand should be expanded by related learning experiences, in bothschool and community, that enable students to learn how to participate in their owngovernance.9Overview of MS CCRS for the Social Studies

MISSISSIPPI COLLEGE- and CAREER-READINESS STANDARDS for the Social Studies 2018Civil Rights StrandMississippi Code 37-13-193 requires the Mississippi Department of Education to work with theMississippi Civil Rights Education Commission to incorporate civil rights education into thestate’s K-12 educational programs. Civil rights education, as understood by the writers of thisframework, is defined as the mastery of content, skills and values that are learned from afocused and meaningful exploration of civil rights issues (both past and present), locally,nationally and globally. This education should lead learners to understand and appreciate issuessuch as social justice, power relations, diversity, mutual respect, and civic engagement.Students should acquire a working knowledge of tactics engaged by civil rights activists toachieve social change. Among these are: demonstrations, resistance, organizing, and collectiveaction/unity. The content was incorporated as a content strand throughout the entire K-12framework at the recommendation of the Mississippi Civil Rights Commission.Economics StrandThe economic strand should help students gain an understanding of economic concepts, whiledemonstrating an understanding of economic and financial literacy inn order to make informedfinancial decisions throughout their lives. The strand is integrated throughout the K-12curriculum emphasizing economic reasoning. Throughout the K-12 curriculum, students willgrasp an understanding of markets and the U.S. economy in a global setting.Geography StrandThe geography strand equips students with the knowledge, skills, and perspectives of worldgeography. Students will learn how to use geographic thinking and information to make wellreasoned decisions and to solve personal and community problems. The geography strand willenable students to use geographic perspectives, knowledge, and skills to engage in ethicalaction with regard to self, other people, other species, and Earth’s diverse cultures and naturalenvironments.History StrandThe history strand investigates events that change the way people live. History is a record ofthe past, of people who changed society. We learn history from 2 sources: primary andsecondary sources. The strand looks into how the past shape does the present, how havepeople and events changed society, and how have influences of other, more powerfulcountries, affected countries today.10Overview of MS CCRS for the Social Studies
