Georgia's Quality Core Curriculum. Raising Expectations. [Grades] K-5.
Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta.
Georgia's Quality Core Curriculum (QCC) originated in 1984 with a recommendation for review every 5 years. In 1996, teachers, administrators, parents, and business leaders throughout Georgia reviewed and analyzed the existing QCC in an effort to update the curriculum, reflect technological advances, and create a more effective base for teaching. This 1999 report on Georgia's education for students in grades K-5 presents core curriculum requirements in the areas of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, health and physical education, and fine arts (dance, music, theater, and visual arts). For each curriculum area, the report presents an introduction and a description of the revision process and revisions made for that specific area. (SM)
