Social Studies


Social studies in Maryland will produce students with the knowledge and skills necessary to be empowered, informed, and socially responsible participants in our nation’s democracy.


The Maryland State Department of Education will build capacity for high quality social studies teaching and learning in all grade levels by providing leadership, guidance, and support to local school systems.
