This guide, in English- and Spanish-language versions, shares with parents information about the South Carolina Curriculum Standards. 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 parents should be aware of the new curriculum standards, and then presents a condensed version of the standards for tenth grade in mathematics (algebra, geometry; mathematics for the technologies); English/Language Arts (reading, communication, writing, research); Science (inquiry, biology, applied biology; and Social Studies (history of the world from 1500 to the present: time, continuity, and change; government/political science: power, authority, and governance; geography: people, places, and environments; economics: production, distribution, and consumption). 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.
