Michigan Citizenship Collaborative Curriculum
A Comprehensive K-12 Social Studies Curriculum
Based on the Michigan Social Studies Content Expectations
The Michigan Citizenship Collaborative Curriculum was created by several Intermediate School Districts (ISDs) and Regional Education Service Agencies (RESAs) to assist local school districts in implementing the new social studies content expectations. Through this collaborative work, the developing partners seek to capitalize on each others' expertise and work together to improve teaching and learning in social studies across the state of Michigan.

The other acceptable configuration is to study the Western Hemisphere in one grade level, and the Eastern Hemisphere in the other.
