Small Schools Social Studies Curriculum, K-3: Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies. Scope Objectives, Activities, Resources, Monitoring Procedures.
Hartl, David, Ed.; And Others
Small schools will find this social studies curriculum guide for grades K-3 helpful in complying with Washington state education laws that require districts to identify student learning objectives and evaluate each student's performance relative to the attainment of the objectives. This curriculum, developed during 1975 and 1976 by teachers and administrators at local, regional and state levels and used as a pilot program in 20 small school districts in the state, has been designed to allow districts to personalize the materials to meet their own educational programs. Additionally, suggested activities, monitoring procedures, and resources used in teaching the sequenced objectives are identified and correlated to 10 Goals for Washington Common Schools and to 7 broad K-12 social studies program goals. Five major subject areas with learning objectives are included: myself and others; families; communities; land and people; and map and globe skills. Within each subject area are sections (28 in all) describing suggested activities in detail. Definitions of terms and discussions of format and student learning objectives are also presented. (AW)
