New Standards

Standards Revision: Social Studies

After a year-long review process led by the Minnesota Department of Education, the proposed revision of the 2004 social studies is now complete. Implementation is required by 2013.

To help meet this need, the Revised Second Edition of Northern Lights, available by the fall of that same year, will align with the new requirements outlined for Grade 6 of the Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards in Social Studies.
