• 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.

    "The more you know of your history, the more liberated you are...History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again." --Maya Angelou
