Indiana Academic Standards for Social Studies.
Indiana State Dept. of Education, Indianapolis.
This publication presents Indiana's Academic Standards for K-8 social studies grade-by-grade and organized into five content areas: (1) history; (2) civics and government; (3) geography; (4) economics; and (5) individuals, society, and culture (psychology, sociology, and anthropology). For instructional purposes, the content knowledge should be integrated with skills for research, inquiry, and participation. A brief scope and sequence model outlines a focus for each grade. It presents high school standards for required and high-enrollment courses, including: World history/civilization, world geography, U.S. history, U.S. government, economics, psychology, and sociology. World history/civilization, world geography, and economics are expected courses for most students, particularly for students pursuing post-secondary education through Indiana's Core 40 and Academic Honors programs. Psychology and sociology are noted as high-enrollment elective courses. Academic standards for the high school courses are organized according to structure of the discipline or subject area. (BT)
