Elementary Integrated Curriculum Framework
Montgomery County Public Schools
The Elementary Integrated Curriculum (EIC) Framework is the guiding curriculum document for the Elementary Integrated Curriculum and represents the elementary portion of the Montgomery County (Maryland) Public Schools (MCPS) Pre-K-12 Curriculum Frameworks. The EIC Framework contains the detailed indicators and objectives that describe what students should know and be able to do in Kindergarten through Grade 5 in Art, General Music, Health Education, Information Literacy, Mathematics, Physical Education, Reading Language Arts, Science and Engineering, and Social Studies. The indicators and objectives in this framework for Art, General Music, Health Education, Physical Education, Science and Engineering, and Social Studies are from previously approved frameworks. The indicators and objectives for Reading Language Arts and Mathematics are from the Common Core State Standards. The indicators and objectives for Information Literacy are from a recent Maryland State Department of Education update to Information Literacy standards. The standards and indicators for the Thinking and Academic Success Skills were developed by MCPS based on research and implementation practice. The EIC Framework is divided into three major sections: Philosophy and Rationale, Grade Level Overviews, and Detailed Content Outcomes and Indicators by Grade Level. The Philosophy and Rationale section contains the overarching Pre-K-12 Frameworks for the content areas and detailed framework for the Thinking and Academic Success Skills. The Grade Level Overviews are a single page synopsis of the Desired Outcomes for all contents by grade level. Desired Outcomes are a high level synthesis of the content area objectives and will form the basis of measurement topics for reporting purposes. The Detailed Content Objectives by Grade Level go down to the objective level for each content area at each grade, representing all that students should know and be able to do at that grade level.
