The evolution in social studies instruction continues to move at such a rapid pace, that core materials alone are not enough to keep up. As a result gaps in core materials surface, and educators look to other sources to supplement their curriculum. Two notable instructional shifts in social studies include a move toward inquiry-based instruction and a push to include more diverse perspectives and non-dominant narratives. State mandates across the country show movement towards more culturally responsive instruction, through course requirements such as, ethnic studies or Native American history.
