Social Studies Standards: End of Cluster Benchmarks--Performance Indicators, Grades 6-8.
Delaware State Dept. of Public Instruction, Dover.
This guide to Delaware social studies standards for grades 6-8 is intended to help and support local school districts in their development of a standards-based curriculum. The guide cites four civics standards, providing end of cluster expectations (listing areas which will serve as the basis for student assessment) and performance indicators for several topics, according to grade level. It repeats this format for four geography standards, four economics standards, and four history standards. The guide's state standards, benchmarks, and performance indicators comprise a framework designed to identify themes, skills, and knowledge that the students of Delaware are expected to know in each of the four disciplines of the social studies. Each of the standards emphasizes a process of reasoning and skill development that requires schools to develop course content. The guide also contains a glossary of social studies terms. (BT)
