Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City. Div. of Curriculum and Instruction.
A core curriculum was developed as a result of the Utah State Board of Education's establishment of a policy requiring identification of specific core curriculum standards to be completed by all students in kindergarten through grade 12 as a requisite for graduation from secondary school. The core curriculum represents those standards of learning that are essential for all students. The standards relate to ideas, concepts, and skills that provide the foundation for subsequent learning. This document presents the core curriculum standards for kindergarten through grade 3. An introductory section explains various requirements of the state board of education pertaining to elementary and secondary education. The next sections are organized by the following subject areas: (1) arts; (2) information technology; (3) language arts; (4) library media; (5) mathematics; (6) responsible healthy lifestyles; (7) science; and (8) social studies. Each of these sections is further divided by grade level. For each grade level, core standards are stated and specific objectives related to the standards are listed. (TM)
