1.4 Comparing the CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy to the History-Social Sciences Analysis Skill Standards

Many of these CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy are not new to history/social studies instruction. In fact, the CA History-Social Science Standards includes Historical and Social Sciences Analysis Skills standards that parallel many of the skills called for in the Reading Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, although there is not a one-to-one relationship. These analysis skills standards are written for grade ranges, K–5, 6–8, and 9–12, and appear before these grade ranges in the larger document. It is important to note that in history/social studies classes, these skills are to be taught and assessed in conjunction with the CA History-Social Science Content Standards.
