Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau. Office of Curriculum Services.
A secondary social studies model curriculum guide for Alaska is presented. The body of the guide lists topics/concepts, learning outcomes/objectives, and sample learning activities in a 3 column format. The first column, topics/concepts, describes the content area, defining the subject broadly and listing subconcepts or associated vocabulary. The second column, learning outcomes/objectives, describes the understandings, behaviors, and goals that students are expected to demonstrate as a result of their learning experiences. The third column, sample learning activities, promotes student progress toward the stated goals. The guide is designed to integrate the knowledge base of facts, concepts, and generalizations with the development of democratic values and beliefs, and skills in critical thinking and problem solving. Eight course outlines are provided: western civilization/world history, U.S. history, Alaskan studies, economics, political science, anthropology, psychology, and sociology. (TRS)
