Defining Social Studies Education in Michigan (K-12).
Michigan State Board of Education, Lansing.
This document begins by providing some introductory guidelines on constructing a K-12 social studies program and conducting a curriculum program review and then goes on to focus on the goals and objectives for social studies education in Michigan. These are divided into three groups: knowledge; democratic values; and skills. For each of these areas, specific goals and objectives are set out with a discussion of how they apply to the various grade levels. The last quarter of the document contains definitions, illustrative concepts, and topics for various courses. This material is designed to help teachers and curriculum specialists enhance their understanding of the scope and structure of the social sciences, the humanities, and related areas of study. Appendices contain education codes for Michigan that relate to social studies education, a list of documents approved by the Michigan State Board of Education that contain recommendations specifically related to social studies education, and a textbook evaluation form.
