Description Ohio's Social Studies Standards: The aim of social studies is the promotion of civic competence – the
knowledge, intellectual processes, and democratic dispositions required of students to be active and engaged participants in public life. Although civic competence is not the only responsibility of social studies nor is it exclusive to the field, it is more central to social studies than any other subject areas in schools. Civic competence rests on a commitment to democratic values, and requires the ability to use knowledge about one’s community, nation, and world; apply inquiry processes; and employ skills to of data collection and analysis,collaboration, decision-making, and problem solving.
