Social Studies in other states

Good Afternoon Everyone,


I am so glad my email sparked lots of great conversations today, I want to think you all for your dedication to your field.  I just wanted to share a chart that was created as these conversations began.  Below you will see the Social Studies Requirements from other states.  The info is almost 2 years old and some may have changed slightly but good food for thought.  I have also included the link the bigfuture College Board has for the number of high school courses most colleges look for .    Please continue to comment on the policy.
