Cincinnati Public Schools, OH. Dept. of Administration, Curriculum, and Instruction.
This social studies course of study for the Cincinnati (Ohio) Public Schools is organized into four sections. Section 1 highlights the broad changes from the previous course of study in the Overview, Introduction, and Special Program Features sections. Program features described in detail include significant areas of new emphasis: history education, multicultural education, geography education, citizenship and law education, economic education, interdisciplinary planning, teaching strategies, and the use of modern technology, equipment, and learning materials. Section 2 states the philosophy of the social studies program, and lists program goals, program/course listings, sequence and level/course descriptions. Much of this section is devoted to scope and sequence charts that link program goals and program objectives with specific student objectives. This section also includes special adaptations of the social studies program for particular programs and schools within the school district. Section 3 identifies intervention strategies and various means of assessment for individual and total program evaluation. Section 4 lists promotion standards for the primary, intermediate, and middle school levels. (DB)
