Social Studies Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) 9-12

A great resource library takes time to build. Check back frequently as we fill the shelves.

The Social Studies Frameworks provide one way that teachers, schools, and districts might organize and teach the Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) within units. Units and frameworks align to connecting themes and enduring understandings that transcend units and courses. Ultimately, the enduring understandings are what students will take from a course that applies to life beyond school. All units and frameworks are designed to promote inquiry.​

NEW​ On December 9, 2021 the State Board of Education approved changes to the GSE for the Economics course required for graduation 45.061, that will be implemented during the 2022-23 school year.  The title for the course will change to Personal Finance and Economics​. The crosswalk, teacher notes, and instructional resources reflecting these changes are coming soon.
