Social Studies Teaching Jobs

Social studies classes are taught in most elementary schools in the U.S. It is a key subject for students as it helps them build a foundation for higher-level classes like American history, civics, and sociology. Schools have social studies as part of their core curriculum and have a need for qualified social studies teachers.

Topics covered in social studies classes are found on standardized tests starting with the elementary grades and up through the ACT and college entrance exams. It’s an essential part of a well-rounded curriculum. As a key subject, there is a great demand for social studies teachers from Oklahoma to Colorado, Alabama to Washington.

Social Studies Teacher Certifications and Qualifications

Qualifications for social studies teachers may vary from state to state. Most bachelor’s degrees in elementary education cover social studies teaching methodologies as part of the teacher prep program. In the majority of states, elementary teachers with a bachelor’s degree are eligible to teach social studies. In some states, a social studies endorsement and passing the relevant skills tests may be required.
