Description The Massachusetts History and Social Science Curriculum Framework provides grade-level standards for K-7, and grade-cluster and course-specific standards for 8-12. The Framework provides required “Concepts and Skills” in Civics and Government for grades K-7 separately, and for grades 8-12 as a cluster. Civics standards are integrated throughout the framework and are included in the American Government and U.S. History courses offered to high school students. According to the framework, “devotion to human dignity and freedom, equal rights, justice, the rule of law, civility and truth, tolerance of diversity, mutual assistance, personal and civic responsibility, self-restraint and self-respect–all these must be taught and learned and practiced.”
