Pursuant to regulations set forth by the Ohio Department of Education and Green Local Schools Board of Education Policy 2220, Adoption of Courses of Study, social studies instruction in the district is conducted in accordance with Ohio's New Learning Standards in Social Studies.
Standard statements provide teachers and parents with a clear description of what students at each grade level are expected to learn. These statements describe not only the academic content students should master but also skills that students should develop over time as a result of participating in social studies learning experiences.
It is important to note that the Ohio's New Learning Standards do not specifically address instructional methods. To guide teachers with instruction in social studies, the Ohio Department of Education has developed model curricula at each grade level. For more information about social studies instruction in Ohio, please visit the Ohio Department of Education landing page for social studies.
