A Roadmap to Excellence in History and Civics

EAD shifts from breadth to depth by offering an inquiry framework that weaves history and civics together and inspires students to learn by asking difficult questions, then seeking answers in the classroom through facts and discussion. 

The EAD Roadmap is neither a set of standards nor a curriculum. It recommends approaches to learning that:

  • inspire students to want to become involved in their constitutional democracy and help to sustain our republic;
  • tell a full and complete narrative of America’s plural, yet shared story;
  • celebrate the compromises needed to make our constitutional democracy work;
  • cultivate civic honesty and patriotism that leaves space to both love and critique this country; and
  • teach both history and civics through a timeline of events and themes that run through those events.

The EAD Roadmap is an inquiry-based content framework for excellence in civic and history education for all learners that is organized by major themes and questions, supported by key concepts. It is vertically spiraled across four grade bands (K–2, 3–5, 6–8, and 9–12). It offers a vision for the integration of history and civic education throughout grades K–12.
