Social Studies Programs


With partners like HISTORY® and Google®, we’re creating a new arena in the classroom where students can relive, re-imagine, and reflect on our past and present. Our content adheres to both Core Standards and the C3 Framework, giving students a solid foundation for excelling in college, career, and civic life. We help teachers make the most of limited class time and allow students to learn on their own terms through differentiated instruction and interactive tools.

Rich programs challenge assumptions and encourage critical thinking.

Into Social Studies™ —Grades K–6

Grades K–6

When students are given the chance to think and act like historians, they develop the active analytical skills they’ll need to succeed in college, career, and civic life. Into Social Studies explores the past and present, inviting learners to tackle challenging questions about our global community while providing teachers with the tools they need to meet new academic standards with limited class time.
