Social Studies

Social Studies Standards • Grades 1-8

The standards for social studies for the Archdiocese of Hartford have four main strands – History, Geography, Civics and Economics. These four stands include all of the content strands from the social studies curriculum frame work from the Connecticut State Department of Education and the National Council for Social Studies. ARCHDIOCESAN STANDARDS/GOALS with learning outcomes for each grade are identified for each of the four standards. 

An integral part in the study of social studies should include the component of Catholic social teaching. Students should be aware of:

  • The life and dignity of the human person
  • The rights and responsibilities of the human person
  • The call to family, community and participation
  • The dignity of work and the rights of workers
  • Options for the poor and vulnerable
  • Solidarity – that all people are one human family

Finally, a goal of the Social Studies Standards is that the students in the Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Hartford will be multi-culturally literate and globally aware.
