Fort Benton Social Studies Curriculum Outline.
Fort Benton Public Schools, MT.
A committee of administrators and faculty of the Fort Benton school system, assisted by consultants from Montana State University, developed a social studies curriculum on the theme "the expanding social order." Objectives of the curriculum are to help the student to acquire a dependable body of knowledge in addition to developing cooperative attitudes toward society, values consistent with a democratic creed, and inquiry skills with which he can search for truth. The K-12 curriculum outline interrelates the disciplines of history, geography, political science, anthropology, sociology, economics, and psychology. The theme is expanded from individual adjustment to group situations in kindergarten through studies of family and community in the primary grades; studies of regions, the United States, and Inter-American countries in grades 4-6; studies of the Pacific and Atlantic communities, the State of Montana, and civics in grades 7 and 8; and studies of the student/individual, world civilization, the United States as a world power, constitutional considerations, and current world affairs in grades 9-12. Objectives and resource materials are specified for each grade level. (JH)
