Arkansas Social Studies Curriculum Framework 1997.
Arkansas State Dept. of Education, Little Rock.
This framework contains six instructional strands. Each strand has a content standard and cumulative student learning expectations for grades K-4, grades 5-8, and grades 9-12. The strands for students to understand are: (1) "Interdependence," how people, cultures, and systems are connected; (2) "Continuity and Change," how ideas, events, and conditions bring about change over time; (3) "Cultural Perspectives," the commonalities and diversities among individuals, groups, and institutions; (4) "Scarcity and Choices," how limited resources necessitate decision making; (5) "Cooperation and Conflict," how differing values and opposing goals can result in conflict, which requires tolerance and cooperation for resolution; and (6) "Citizenship," how students demonstrate an understanding of the ideals, rights, and responsibilities of participating in a democratic society.
