Description Michigan’s Grade Level Expectations for Social Studies (grade-level standards for K-8) and High School Content Expectations for Social Studies (course-specific standards for high school) will soon be replaced by the Michigan K-12 Standards for Social Studies. The new standards are also grade-level standards for K-8 and course-specific for high school. They include a strand of standards for Civics and Government in Grades K-4, and 6-7. Civics is embedded in the content in other grades and courses including high school Civics. According to the draft standards, the goal of social studies is “to prepare young people to become responsible citizens. Responsible citizens display social understanding and civic efficacy... Instruction should provide activities that actively engage students so that they simultaneously learn about civic participation while involved in the civic life of their communities, our state, and our nation. The social studies curriculum prepares students to participate in political activities, to serve their communities, and to regulate themselves responsibly.” The standards provide eight descriptors of what a “responsible citizen” should look like, including: knowing how, when, and where to construct and express reasoned positions on public issues and acting constructively to further the public good.
