The remainder of the guide contains statements about each of the six disciplines; a conceptual framework for curriculum development; significant concepts related to the social science disciplines; and a sequence of k-12 content made up of broad topics of problems and issues. An appendix includes an outline on how to study a society; An approach to the study of Chinese history; and a bibliography. (SJM)
