Revised Social Studies for Liberian Schools Curriculum Syllabus: Scope and Sequence.
Jones, Abeodu B.
This curriculum guide for use in Liberian schools, K-12, describes the responsibility and burden of social studies education as that of providing method for implementing and strengthening democratic attitudes and behavior, knowledge, understanding, beliefs and loyalty in all Liberian citizens. This is elaborated through 21 more specific objectives to be achieved in the teaching of social studies. The general content of social studies instruction for each grade is briefly described. The learning sequence largely parallels that of United States social studies education, beginning with understandings associated with the school and home in first grade, progressing through studies of community, county, country, Nigerian and African geography, history, civics, of Nigeria and Africa, and concluding with a study of world geography, history, and economics. Related documents are SO 000 744 and SO 000 746. (JLB)
