Catholic School Board, Chicago, IL.
The objectives of this curriculum guide for teachers are: 1) to provide a unified list of yearly instructional objectives for each social studies classroom; 2) to provide basic standards for measuring pupil progress; and 3) to provide a guide for the continuous development in the social studies. The recommendations for each grade level cover: content sequence, materials, intellectual objectives, cognitive skills, and affective objectives. Recommendations emphasize: 1) local and international awareness; 2) problem-solving, role-playing, and the development of pupil ability to choose relevant facts through inductive processes; 3) pupil self-learning of the causes and effects of human decision-making throughout the evolutionary process of human adaptation to and modification of our planet's environment; and, 4) how to learn and how to apply the methods of the social sciences. The content for the primary grades includes economics and sociology with respect to the family, communities, and cities. Anthropology, history, and geography are the concern in the intermediate grades. In junior high school, the political history of the United States, community action and social problems, and problem-solving or critical thinking are of primary concern. A list of international, world, economic, social, environmental, citizenship, and governmental issues is included. (SBE)
