Social Studies

Illinois has adopted new Social Studies standards based on the national College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards, and plans to fully implement them in 2017-2018. These standards aim to increase the rigor in the K-12 Social Studies classroom. Students will build critical thinking skills, learn how to problem solve and learn what it means to be a participatory engaged citizen. In Joliet Public Schools District 86 our Social Studies curriculum grows from students learning about themselves, their community, their state and nation to learning about the global world and its impact on their lives. Social Studies standards are in alignment with Common Core English Language Arts and allows for a cross referencing of both curriculum areas which allows the student to see the importance of both.
