State Objectives: Reading, Writing, and Mathematics, Grades K-12. Basic Skills Assessment Program.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
Pursuant to legislative requirements regarding the establishment of statewide educational objectives in the basic skills for kindergarten through grade 12, such objectives were developed by the South Carolina State Board of Education. Identification of objectives was accomplished through two different projects. The procedures used in each of the identification processes, and the rationale for the resulting objectives are described. Eighteen kindergarten objectives represent the primary components of what is considered to be a strong readiness program aimed at future success in reading, mathematics, and writing. Each objective is followed by a clarification in which activities (ranging in difficulty) are suggested for helping students attain mastery. The grades 1-12 objectives were formulated to be broad in scope, each subsumming a series of lesser enabling skills. In the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics, non-combinable skills which could become ongoing aims for grades 1-12 teachers were isolated. The objectives are presented in subject matter groups and organized by grade level. (Author/GK)
