Description The History-Social Science Content Standards for California Public Schools (grade-level standards) “emphasize historical narrative, highlight the roles of significant individuals throughout history, and convey the rights and obligations of citizenship.” In kindergarten through grade 3, students are introduced to the basic concepts of civics. Beginning in grade 4, the disciplines are woven together within the standards at each grade. “Students in grade twelve pursue a deeper understanding of the institutions of American government... The [12th grade] standards represent the culmination of civic literacy as students prepare to vote, participate in community activities, and assume the responsibilities of citizenship.
