Social Studies Instructional Objectives, K-12.
Minneapolis Public Schools, Minn. Dept. of Social Studies.
Knowledge objectives, skill and process objectives, and affective objectives are given for teaching K-12 social studies. Knowledge objectives are provided that help students to function rationally and humanely through a reservoir of data, ideas, concepts, generalizations, and theories in combination with thinking, valuing, and social participation. The skill and process objectives include intellectual skills, data processing, and human-relations competencies and provide students the means to achieve the knowledge objectives. Affective objectives refer to free examination of the value dilemmas underlying social issues and problematic situations in the everyday lives of students, which can be practiced in the school and in social studies classrooms. This guide is arranged in three parts: elementary (grades K-6), junior high (7-9), and senior high (10-12). Sections of the guide are presented as charts with concepts for each grade level listed across from the objectives. A teacher can select an objective and then find the appropriate concept to teach in his grade level for achieving that objective. Although developed by the Minneapolis Public Schools, this guide is applicable to all teachers of K-12 social studies. (Author/ND)
