Nevada Academic Standards in the Social Studies: History.
Nevada State Dept. of Education, Carson City.
Noting that knowledge of history is the precondition of political intelligence, Nevada's academic standards for history are intended to provide the framework for a comprehensive K-12 history education to prepare students for the responsibilities and challenges of life in the 21st century. It is imperative in today's global economy for Nevada students to understand the history of their community, state, nation, and the world and to realize that knowledge of a person's roots and a sense of an individual's place in humanity allow the individual the fullest sense of self and shared community on which both personal development and responsible citizenship depend. Standards 1 and 2 represent skills needed by students to understand the events of the past. Using chronology, students will organize as well as understand the sequence and relationship of events. Standards 3 through 10 cover the major eras and concepts to be learned in the study of world history, U.S. history, and Nevada history. Performance level descriptors are provided for grades 2, 3, 5, 8, and 12. (Includes a glossary.) (BT)
