California History-Social Science Standards (1998)


In the second half of the 1990s, many states began earnestly developing standards in various subject areas. In 1998, California policymakers and educators were immersed in drafting new history-social science standards. CIE was requested by state officials to provide feedback on several drafts of the evolving document, beginning with a January draft, followed April and June drafts. CIE’s assessments were intended to help California policymakers develop standards reflecting the state’s ideals and overall educational goals.
