Wisconsin adopted the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics in June, 2010.  Part of the ELA CCSS is a section on "Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and the Technical Subjects".  This has been expanded and interpreted in Wisconsin to become the CCSS for Literacy in All Subjects, K-12.  It is also commonly termed "disciplinary literacy".

This site is a compilation of the work that was done by a team of social studies educators from across the state and is meant to be a web portal for K-12 teachers to access resources for use in their classrooms.
