Middle School Social Studies

Social studies curriculum and instruction in Carroll County is designed to prepare all students to be active, responsible citizens of a diverse, democratic society in a larger global community. Throughout their social studies experience, students develop their understandings of their community, nation, and world and refine their critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Development of Carroll County’s middle school curriculum is guided by the standards and objectives set forth by the Voluntary State Curriculum (VSC). These guiding standards promote access to consistent, high quality curriculum and instruction for all students. 

In middle school, Carroll County's students expand their understandings of the community, nation and world and develop the essential skills established in elementary school through the study of Ancient History, Medieval History, and United States History.

Middle School Social Studies Course Sequence
6th Grade Ancient History

To support students and teachers, the Social Studies Department aligns Carroll County’s middle school curriculum with the VSC, leads the development of curriculum, and facilitates professional development so that teachers can effectively implement the curriculum and promote achievement for all students.
