Mid Continent Research for Education and Learning
This study identifies a core set of geography standards and benchmarks that have been identified as exemplary and are used by a significant number of educators in the Central Region served by McREL (Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming). Specifically, the study provides a list of the knowledge and skills expected of students in most or all states in the Central Region that also are found in state standards documents rated as exemplary by national organizations for their coverage of social studies content, including geography. The list of standards and benchmarks presented in this report represents geography content that is highly valued nationally as well as within the Central Region. One of a series of related reports published by McREL, this report is intended to assist curriculum directors, social studies coordinators, and others who seek to identify important geography content and focus classroom instruction on the most important content.
