The purpose of this North Carolina Standard Course of Study is to guarantee that all students have equal access to the same basic curriculum. It provides a detailed, integrated curriculum plan for all subjects at all grade levels. The document explains the philosophy and rationale underlying the curriculum, describes and outlines the theoretical taxonomy of thinking skills used in designing the plan, presents provisions for exceptional children, offers considerations for developing a thinking framework, and discusses guidelines for using the curriculum. The bulk of the guide presents the curriculum in the following subject areas: (1) arts education; (2) computer/technology skills; (3) English language arts; (4) healthful living; (5) mathematics; (6) science; (7) second-language studies; (8) social studies; and (9) work-force development, which includes sections on planning, the middle grades, agricultural education, business education, family and consumer sciences, health occupations, marketing education, career development, technical education, and trade and industrial education. Each section features an overview; the skills, goals, and objectives of the curriculum; and a grade-level strand guide. The guide emphasizes what students should know and be able to do as they progress through various levels of proficiency. Three appendices provide further details on vocational student organizations, minimum graduation requirements, and other information. (RJM)
