Teaching California helps teachers and school districts implement California's new History-Social Science Framework, which was adopted by the State Board of Education in July 2016. The California History-Social Science Project served as the primary writer of the new Framework, which outlines an instructional approach that promotes student-centered inquiry and encourages students to develop clear and persuasive arguments based on their own interpretations of the past, using relevant evidence. The Framework also details how educators can teach students history-social science, while at the same time develop their proficiency in English, as outlined in the Common Core and English Language Development Standards.

More information about the project, including available resources, can be found on the Teaching California Web site.
