This curriculum guide provides a one-year course in social studies for grades 7-9. The guide is intended to serve as a resource to teachers, students, department chairmen, guidance personnel, curriculum planners, and anyone else involved in present or future curriculum planning. The course is divided into 37 section areas covering the topics of United States history from colonization to World War II, world history and civilization from early man to the Renaissance, American government, consumer education, and drug education. Each section contains one major objective which encompasses the work of the entire section. Within each section a series of numbered sub-objectives provide specific levels of learning, content objectives, and means of evaluation. Suggested class activities are included as part of the lesson plan for each section and relate to how the student will attain the section objectives. The learning objectives are based upon Bloom's taxonomy of educational objectives which includes cognitive, affective, and psychomotor areas. (DE)
