Planning Curriculum in Social Studies.
Prickette, Karen R.
The goal of the Wisconsin "Model Academic Standards for Social Studies" is to design a social studies program that develops knowledgeable, active citizens who are able to recognize, analyze, and act on personal and public problems or decisions that affect the well-being of an individual, group, a nation, or the world. Following an introduction, the guide is divided into 14 chapters: (1) "Organizing the Social Studies Curriculum: Recommended Scope and Sequence in Wisconsin's Schools for Social Studies"; (2) "Social Studies Skills: Skills Related to Processes in Social Studies"; (3) "Curriculum Connections: Curriculum Connections Take Time and Teacher Knowledge"; (4) "Geography: People, Places, and Environments"; (5) "History: Time, Continuity, and Change"; (6) "Political Science and Citizenship: Power, Authority, Governance, and Responsibility"; (7) "Economics: Production, Distribution, Exchange, and Consumption"; (8) "The Behavioral Sciences: Individuals, Institutions, and Society (Culture)"; (9) "Additional Studies within the Scope of Social Studies"; (10) "Student Assessment in Social Studies"; (11) "Technology in the Social Studies"; (12) "Evaluating Programs and Resources"; (13) "Professional Development"; and (14) "Teaching and Learning Strategies."
