New Social Studies Standards

What do you think our students should know about social studies?  The Nebraska Department of Education has released a draft of the Nebraska Social Studies Standards and would love to hear from you!  The standards provide the framework for what students are expected to know about social studies, and your feedback will help make improvements to the standards before they are adopted.  The survey should take less than ten minutes to complete for each grade level selected.    To complete the survey, use this link:  Social Studies Standards Survey.
