MMSD has written grade-specific social studies standards, K-8, based on the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards for Social Studies.  High school courses use the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards for Social Studies, and do not have MMSD grade-specific standards. The Common Core State Standards for Literacy in All Subjects are taught in conjunction with the social studies to promote disciplinary reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language development.
