Ten general objectives are stated: "show concern for the welfare and dignity of others"; "support rights and freedoms of all individuals"; "help maintain law and order"; "know the main structure and functions of our governments"; "seek community improvement through active, democratic participation"; "understand problems of international relations"; "support rationality in communication, thought and action on social problems"; "take responsibility for own personal development and obligations"; "help and respect their own families"; and "nurture the development of their children as future citizens." Each objective is divided into sub-objectives, and behaviors are suggested appropriate for four chosen age levels: 9-, 13-, and 17-year olds, and adults.
