Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg.
Public schools in Pennsylvania were created to educate children to be useful citizens, loyal to the principles upon which the nation was founded, and aware of their duties as citizens to maintain those ideals. This document includes 4 critical elements of civics and government standards that describe what students should know and be able to demonstrate: (1) Principles and Documents of Government; (2) Rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship; (3) How Government Works; and (4) How International Relations Function. The four proposed standards in the document each have a separate list of student objectives for grade 3, grade 6, grade 9, and grade 12. A glossary is included to assist the reader in understanding terminology contained in the standards. (BT)
