					                                   Social Studies Grade Level Expectations
                                                                            A Framework for Instruction and Assessment




The Social Studies Grade and Course Level Expectations outline related ideas, concepts, skills and procedures that form the foundation for understanding and learning social studies. It
includes updates to the October 2004 K-12 Social Studies Grade Level Expectations. In addition it provides a focus for teaching, learning, and assessing social studies. The Grade Level
Expectations (GLEs) in grades K-8 specify social studies concepts that students need to understand thoroughly for future learning in grades 9-12 and beyond. The Course Level Expectations
(CLEs) for American History and Government outline rigorous expectations for understanding our history and effective participation in our civic life as citizens and consumers.

Essential content that is aligned to state and national documents that support inquiry-based instruction included in the Grade and Course Level Expectations should be addressed in contexts
That promote analyzing and applying information, communication, problem solving and making decisions as responsible members of society. Each of Grade and Course Level Expectation is
aligned to Show-Me Content and Process Standards (1996). A Depth-of-Knowledge level has been assigned to each grade and course level expectation. The Depth-of-Knowledge identifies
the highest level at which the expectation will be assessed based on the demand of the GLE. Depth-of-Knowledge Levels include: Level 1-recall: Level 2-Basic Reasoning; Level 3-Complex
Reasoning; and Level 4-Extended Reasoning.

NOTE: It is essential to include all expectations in your course or grade level curriculum as they are important components in the understanding and use of social studies concepts
and skills even though they are assessed locally.
