Making and Measuring the California History Standards
Fogo, Bradley
Phi Delta Kappan, v92 n8 p62-67 May 2011
The California history and social science standards-based reform has been touted as the "gold standard" for state history curricula. But the standards, framework, and tests that constitute this reform provide inconsistent and contradictory criteria for teaching and assessing history and social science. An examination of the political process that resulted in these standards and tests shows that the conflicting pedagogical messages are poor models for emulation. (Contains 4 figures.)
