New Hampshire K-12 Social Studies Curriculum Framework.
New Hampshire State Dept. of Education, Concord.
Based on a significant body of research in social studies education, curriculum design, and effective instructional practices, this New Hampshire framework represents a broad consensus about what students should know and be able to do in the social studies and offers a guideline for a systemic educational improvement and change. Four social studies disciplines serve as the primary organizers. Each of these organizing strands (civics and government, economics, geography, and history) includes three major components: (1) purpose; (2) curriculum standards; and (3) proficiency standards. The framework outlines broad goals for social studies education and is then divided into separate sections for civics and government, economics, geography, and history. In each section the standards are taken into consideration, beginning with elementary and continuing through secondary education. Contains 23 references. (BT)
