South Carolina State Education Oversight Committee, Columbia.; South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
This guide shares information about the South Carolina Curriculum Standards with parents. The standards outline state requirements for children's learning, and what students across the state should be able to do in certain subjects. The guide lists seven key reasons for parents to be aware of the new curriculum standards, and then presents a condensed version of the standards for twelfth grade in mathematics (numbers and operation, algebra, data analysis and probability), English/language arts (reading/literature, listening, speaking, writing, research), science (inquiry, life science, earth science, physical science), and social studies (understand: the impact of scarcity and choice on economic activity, the role of supply and demand in market operations, the role of government in the operation of markets, the national economy and economic policy, the costs and benefits of trade and the global economy, the origins and functions of government, the foundations of American democracy, the role of the United States' Constitution in American democracy, the relationship between the United States and other nations of the world, and the rights and responsibilities of a United States citizen today). Listed after the standards for each subject area are sample assessment questions for parents to complete with their children, selected book titles for additional reading, and Web site addresses for extended learning.
