Wyoming State Dept. of Education, Cheyenne.
Designed to help Wyoming school districts meet the needs of their students and communities, this manual outlines the essential elements of a well-planned, comprehensive social studies curriculum. The four components of the program, each described in a separate section, are essentials of education, fundamentals of an exemplary social studies program, essentials of the social studies curriculum, and organization and management of the social studies program. The section on essentials of the social studies curriculum is divided into subtopics covering knowledge acquisition, democratic beliefs, thinking skills, participation skills, and civic action; while the section on organization and management of the social studies program covers development, implementation, and instructional considerations. An appendix on Wyoming statutes and policies relevant to social studies includes brief sections on the Wyoming Education Code, Minimal Competencies for High School Graduation, Accreditation regulations for social studies, teacher certification requirements, and information about a curriculum development package.
