The Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) is currently revising the K-12 Louisiana Student Standards for Social Studies. The major goals of this revision include balancing the acquisition of content knowledge with disciplinary skills, creating a more coherent sequence of content, and better integrating the historical perspectives of people from all different backgrounds.
The draft revisions to the standards were developed by a group of Louisiana K-12 content experts and endorsed by the Louisiana Social Studies Standards Steering Committee, which is composed of teachers, educational leaders, parents, students, and community members. The next step in the process is to gather feedback and input from the educational community and the public at large.
If you would like to view the draft copy of the revised standards and have the opportunity to comment, please visit the Louisiana Department of Education's online social studies comment portal. Access to the public comment portal is available by clicking here.
