Introduction to Ohio (ODE) Model Curriculum Social Studies
Published on Oct 5, 2012
The State Board of Education has adopted the Ohio Revised Standards in Social Studies as part of Ohio's New Learning Standards for academic learning. The Kindergarten - Grade 12 standards will be fully in use in Ohio classrooms by 2014-2015.
ODE 21st Century Skills
The new content standards directly address the 21st century skills of civic literacy, financial and economic literacy
and global awareness. Links to other 21st century skills, such as problem solving, communication, media literacy
and leadership, are more fully developed in the model curriculum. The model curriculum provides instructional
support including content elaborations, expectations for learning, instructional strategies, instructional resources,
connections and essential questions.

The State Board of Education adopted Ohio’s Learning Standards for Social Studies as a part of Ohio’s learning system. The Ohio Department of Education’s state assessments are based on these standards until the 2020-2021 school year.

Teacher Resource: Inquiry - Reflect
Inquiry is a cycle. Reflection is embedded throughout the inquiry process, but it is especially important at the end of a learning experience for students to think about what they have learned about the topic or idea and about inquiry itself. This video shows what new understandings and perspectives the students share with Jacqueline Braithwaite.
National Archives and Records Administration
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is the nation's record keeper. Of all documents and materials created in the course of business conducted by the United States Federal government, only 1%-3% are so important for legal or historical reasons that they are kept by us forever.

Facing History and Ourselves
Our mission is to engage students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice, and antisemitism in order to promote the development of a more humane and informed citizenry. By studying the historical development of the Holocaust and other examples of genocide, students make the essential connection between history and the moral choices they confront in their own lives.
Facing History in 60 Seconds
There are many classes that teach science, math, and English. There’s only one that teaches us to be more human.
Face It - Facing History and Ourselves
Facing History and Ourselves empowers teachers and students to think critically about history and to understand the impact of their choices.
