To better support any curriculum alignment or clarification work that teams may complete this year, we are sharing the latest Google Sheet created by our team: 2023 Reduced Indiana Academic Standards, K-12, Social Studies. Educators will see that K-5 and 6-12 are found on two separate tabs in the same sheet.
The sheets are based off of the The Indiana Department of Education's content and grade-specific standards. You can view their easily accessible PDF documents in this post as well. If you haven't had the opportunity to explore the files yet, the accompanying memo provides links to folders that contain the following subjects:

Thank you to Yvonne Thompson, author and educational consultant, for creating the K-12 Social Studies documents. To learn more about how to implement the reduced standards or how to integrate the new 6th Grade Civics standards, contacted Yvonne by visiting her at www.thegraftededucator.com.
