Welcome to the Social Studies Hub where you can access high-quality, peer-reviewed teaching resources aligned to the Utah Social Studies standards.

About Hub

The National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) defines social studies as “the study of individuals, communities, systems, and their interactions across time and place that prepares students for local, national, and global civic life.

The resources found here include curated collections of units, lesson plans, learning experiences, and materials that align with Utah’s Social Studies Core Standards. LEAs have the duty to select instructional materials that best correlate to the core standards for Utah public schools and graduation requirements. (UCA 53G-4-402(1(a)). Posting of resources does not imply the resources have received official endorsement from the State Board. Educators are responsible to ensure use of these materials complies with LEA policies and directives.
