Instructional Objectives Exchange. American History. Grades 7-12.
Instructional Objectives Exchange, Los Angeles, CA.
The collection, one of several that deal with various disciplines, contains 19 objectives and related evaluation items for American History, grades 7 through 12. Each objective is stated in operational terms, and contains three elements: the objective, measurement items, and means for judging the adequacy of student responses. The behavioral aspect as well as the content of the objective have been carefully selected so that the student is required to master the political, social, and economic concepts basic to American history. Teaching methods emphasize the principles of the historical method, inference and analysis of data. The student is required to check data, distinguish among facts, make inferences and value judgments, and to interpret historical events on the basis of a complete view of the available source materials. Each objective is structured to permit use in each of the major chronological periods of history consisting of the Colonial period, Civil War and Reconstruction, Westward Expansion, Industrialization, World War II, and post-World War II.
