Social Studies Curriculum Guide: Grade 9. Bulletin 1989, No 35.
Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery. Div. of Instructional Services.
Designed to help classroom teachers implement the Alabama Course of Study for the social studies, this state curriculum guide covers two areas: the world geography and Alabama history. World geography looks at geographic themes and concepts, physical geography, human geography, the developed world, and the less developed world. Alabama history examines: contemporary Alabama; first inhabitants to statehood; statehood to secession; Civil War, Reconstruction, and recovery; Alabama and the new South; twentieth century Alabama; and local history of community studies. Each area of the guide consists of three distinct sections. The first section is a table of contents that lists what students should learn (student outcomes) in grade 9. After each outcome, page numbers direct the teacher to classroom activities that address the outcome. The second and largest section of the guide consists of classroom activities that are preceded by the specific student outcomes addressed in the activities and notes for teachers that convey information important for effectively carrying out the activities. The third section summarizes the relationship of student outcomes to the Alabama Course of Study on social studies from which the outcomes were taken. This section is designed to serve as a reference for local school systems that may wish to trace the source of each outcome or to rate each outcome as basic, standard, or advanced. (DB)
