The Kansas Curricular Standards for Civics-Government, Economics, Geography and History.
Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka.
This curriculum standards guide for Kansas presents the following mission statement: the goal of civics/government, economics, geography, and history curricula is to enable students by systematic study to acquire the knowledge, skill, and judgment to continue to learn for themselves; to participate intelligently, justly, and responsibly in civic life and in deliberation about local, national, and international issues; and to enrich private life. The guide is organized by disciplines (each of which embodies a distinctive mode of thought) and provides standards, benchmarks, and indicators that are specific and rich in content and presented by grade level as well as by discipline. For civics/government, the guide explains how to use the standards and presents five benchmarks (Rule of Law; Civic Values; U.S. Constitution; Rights, Privileges, Responsibilities; Government Systems). For economics, the guide explains how to use the standards and presents five benchmarks (Scarcity; Market Economy; Economic Systems; Role of Government; Decision Making). For geography, the guide explains how to use the standards and presents five benchmarks (Maps and Location; Regions; Physical Systems; Human Systems; Human-Environment Interactions). For history, the guide explains how to use the standards and presents separate benchmarks for Kansas history, United States history, and world history. Seven appendixes are attached: (1) "Do You Know the Requirements?"; (2) "Glossary"; (3) "Interdisciplinary Approach Ideas"; (4) "Geographic Locations To Know"; (5) "World History Content Outline"; (6) "Resources"; and (7) "Standards Document Writers."
