Curricular Program for the Schools. K-12. Cleveland Diocesan Social Science Program.
Catholic Board of Education, Diocese of Cleveland, OH.
These guidelines for teachers are part of a total social studies K-12 curricular program. The guide provides a basis for developing courses of study adapted to the needs of students; to make the teacher more aware of student-performance at their respective grade level, and as a basis to make decisions regarding pilot programs and adoption of textbooks. The ultimate goal of the interdisciplinary program is the formation of articulate, socially-conscious citizens who will work for the perfection of the world community. Planned as a total sequence so that learning is developmental and cumulative, the program emphasizes a conceptual approach recognizing that understanding, skills, attitudes, and values are all interlocking aspects of the total learning experience. Scope and sequence charts provide a framework for the K-12 curriculum, with a list of suggested activities and a bibliography of materials provided for each grade. The broad themes for primary grades focus upon family, community, and the earth; for intermediate grades, regional studies, man's adventures, and culture; for junior high, Latin America; local, and U.S. history; for senior high, global and American history, and government.
