Craven, Jean; And Others
The state of New Mexico requires all sixth grade students to take the year-long social studies course entitled Eastern Hemisphere Studies. Seventh grade students are required to take two semester-long courses, are in Western Hemisphere Studies and the other in New Mexico History and Geography. The year-long social studies course on U.S. History is required of all eighth graders. The organization and contents of this guide are intended to assist the teacher in identifying major ideas around which these courses might be organized. It should help teachers decide what to leave out at least as much as it helps them decide what to include. Various course outlines and timelines are offered for each course. The main themes are identified, outlines of those themes are given, key concepts, people, and events are presented, and expected student competencies are listed for each unit within each course. (JB)
