Social Studies Course of Study.
Miller, John E.; Murphy, Terrence A.
This K-12 sequential course of study is the result of one school district's efforts to improve continuity in the social studies curriculum. Following an introduction and statement of philosophy, the program is organized around four basic educational areas--knowledge, application, valuing, and participation. Specific program goals include promoting dignity to develop positive attitudes toward oneself and others; providing for transmission of American cultural heritage; providing basic skills necessary for participation in our society; understanding and practicing democratic ideas and ideals; developing an understanding for world change; learning to respect individual differences; developing a positive attitude toward one's work; and learning about the uses and distribution of land, labor, capital, and management in a "mixed economy." A scope and sequence chart comprises the remainder of the document, which presents not only objectives for each grade level and social studies course, but also level of understanding expected from the learner, e.g., introductory, review and restatement of concept, concept expansion, or concept enrichment. The document concludes by listing possible teaching strategies and methods of student and program evaluation. (LH)
