    It is recognized by many educational researchers that quality social studies instruction is critical not only to the future success of the social, economic, and political system but to the success of student performance on the ELA Common Core State Standards. Therefore, it is the goal of FCUSD to have social studies classrooms rich in rigorous curriculum that develops social understanding but also to have those classrooms organized around inquiry and primary sources supported by student discussion and argumentative writing.
