Sonoma County Office of Education

History and Social Science

Historic Selma March to Montgomery On July 14, 2016, the California State Board of Education adopted a new curriculum framework for history and social science. This framework provides new guidance for implementation of the CA History-Social Studies standards adopted in 1998. The four driving themes of this new framework, content, inquiry, literacy, and citizenship, create a context for learning that and emphasizes deeper learning, critical thinking and clear communication.

The Sonoma County Office of Education will assist educators in finding primary sources and other resources to enhance deeper learning. They will also facilitate professional learning and support for schools as they implement the new framework.
