Summary

This curriculum framework represents the first statewide guideline for learning, teaching, and assessment in history and social science for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts's public schools. The framework is based on sound research and effective practice and reflects a vision of how classrooms can and should look to assist all students to achieve high standards of excellence. Following a visual overview and an introduction, the framework comprises 10 sections and three appendixes: (1) "Core Concept," states the fundamental purposes of a curriculum in history and social science: to enable students to acquire knowledge, skills, and judgment so as to continue to learn for themselves, participate intelligently in civic life, and avail themselves of historical and cultural resources. Further sections are: (2) "Guiding Principles"; (3) "Reasoning, Reflection, Research, and Context in History and Social Science"; (4) "Core Knowledge in United States and World History, Geography, Economics, and Civics and Government"; (5) "Commonly Taught Subtopics Related to Core Knowledge in United States and World History, Geography, Economics, and Civics and Government"; (6) "Pre K-12 Scope and Sequence of History and Social Science Instruction"; (7) "History and Social Science in Pre K and Elementary Grades"; (8) "Study Strands and Learning Standards: History, Geography, Economics, and Civics and Government Overview"; (9) "Learning Standards and Examples, Pre K-12"; and (10) "Using the History and Social Science Curriculum Framework in Schools." Appendixes list American political documents recommended for study; recommended reading; and Massachusetts museums, historic sites, and state parks. (BT)
