Do your students conduct research? Do they know how to conduct research? Library of Congress SCIM - C Method English/Language Arts section of the standards focus on literacy.
“History Teachers are literacy teachers”
“historical reading and writing are skills that students should master before they leave high school”
“vision” of a literate person in the 21st century includes such things as demonstrating “the cogent reasoning and use of evidence...essential to…responsible citizenship in a democratic republic.” Social Studies and the Common Core Standards secondary students should master “arguments focused on discipline-specific content
Twelfth graders should be able to “introduce precise, knowledgeable claims,” distinguish them from counterclaims, and supply “data and evidence” for each while indicating its “strengths and limitations.”
