There are no specific Common Core Standards for history/social science (HSS); rather, the literacy standards, common across all subjects, are applied to history /  social science content. The existing California History Social Science content standards remain in place, allowing educators to focus on the reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills of their students in addition to the important historical information that must be covered in their content classes.

Review the previously adopted California HSS standards, as well as the California Common Core literacy standards for history/social science.
