• History-Social Science and Civic Engagement

    ACOE's History-Social Science and Civic Engagement program seeks to promote deeper, inquiry-based teaching and learning in History-Social Science, and to help prepare K-12 students for active civic engagement in our diverse, increasingly complex society.  To do so, we provide support for districts and schools implementing California's new History-Social Science Framework, and facilitate the County's well established History Day, and Mock Trial programs.  Here are a set of useful Instructional Resources.

     Census 2020 Training

    For the first time in our history, California may LOSE a seat in Congress.  

    An incomplete count in the 2020 Census could cost California billions of dollars in federal funding and representation in Congress. You can help make sure this doesn’t happen...

    The Sacramento County Office of Education in partnership with the Los Angeles County Office of Education has developed curriculum modules at the 5th, 8th, 11th, and 12th grades designed to teach students about the US Census and get them excited to advocate for a complete count in 2020.

    Come to a FREE training in this curriculum to learn about how you can teach about the US Census without disrupting your schedule!
