Course Goals in Social Science, Grades K-12. Critique Draft.
Multnomah County Intermediate Education District, Portland, OR.
This document on course goals in the social sciences is one part of a critique series dealing with the development and evaluation of course goals in six subject matter areas for grades K-12. The series provides an initial pool of course-level goals that are expected to be of considerable value in assisting educators with goal definition related to curriculum planning and development, instruction, evaluation, and accountability. Course goals in the social sciences are organized according to five subject matter areas: geography, history, behavioral science, economics, and political science. Goals in geography are further subdivided into units on geographical analysis and unique aspects of geopolitical regions. History goals are divided into broad study of history, world history, and history of the various continents. Behavioral science goals include goals in sociology, anthropology, and psychology. Economic goals are organized according to the broad subject areas in economics: macroeconomics, microeconomics, the production of goods and services, the consumption of goods and services, money, economic growth, international trade, comparative economic systems, and economic problems. Political science goals are organized by political organization, political institutions, political behavior, political ideology, the individual in the political system, international relations, comparative modern governments, and political problems. Related documents are EA 004 941-947 and ED 061 043. (Author/DN)
