Social Studies. Standards of Learning Objectives for Virginia Public Schools: Revised 1989.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
The standards in this document resulted from a statewide effort to identify a scope and sequence of content, concepts, skills, and attitudes in social studies from kindergarten through grade twelve. The goals embodied in the standards include: (1) providing experiences that enable students to participate in society effectively and responsibly; (2) assisting students in understanding basic democratic ideals and values that affect decision making in public and private life; (3) offering a framework of knowledge and skills to assist students in understanding themselves and society and to serve as a basis for continuous learning in history and the social sciences; and (4) assisting students in acquiring concepts and problem-solving skills that foster rational solutions to problems encountered in everyday life. A program description is presented for each grade level and represents the major emphasis of the program. Learning objectives also are listed for each grade level that represent a framework for instruction that is believed necessary for further education and employment. Paralleling learning objectives with current events or contemporary societal issues is an integral part of the program at each grade level. (JB)
