Summary

This study was designed to provide schools, districts, and states with a means for identifying the knowledge and skills that are most important for students to learn for the subject areas of geography and history. Five state standards documents were selected to represent the exemplary content in geography and history. These documents were selected by analyzing the critical reviews of state curriculum documents conducted by the Fordham Foundation and the American Federation of Teachers. Once the five state documents were selected for a given area, the next step was to identify and classify the content. The eventual product was a master document that organized the knowledge and skills from the five state documents and information indicating where that content is found. The product of the study is a set of standards and benchmarks identified in the two subject areas at differing grade bands. For geography and history the standards and benchmarks are provided in six tables, organized by grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. (Contains 16 references.) (SLD)
