Standards

  • SST-06.G.01 Describe the physical processes that shape the Earth’s surface and how these affect the lives of people who live there.
  • SST-06.G.02 Analyze the movement of people, goods, ideas, technology, etc. throughout the world.
  • SST-06.G.03 Analyze the unifying physical and human characteristics of a region and their formal and informal boundaries.
  • SST-06.G.04 Use geographic tools to locate both the absolute and relative location of places and regions around the world.
  • SST-06.G.05 Analyze how human beings are dependent upon, adapt to, and modify their environment to meet their needs.

Description

These geography standards are based on the Five Themes of Geography: Place, Movement, Regions, Location, and Human-Environment Interaction. These standards are written to give students a global perspective, which they can apply to other courses of study. Quality geography education is more than memorizing places on a map. It involves an understanding of various cultures, their motivations, and their connections to the global community. It also includes a deep understanding of how human beings have altered the landscape of the Earth over time, both physically and culturally.

Calculation Method for Domains

Domains are larger groups of related Standards with benchmarks. So the Domain is a calculation of all the related standards that calculate to the benchmarks. So click on the benchmark identifier below each Standards to access the learning targets and proficiency scales for each standard.

 World History Domain

BPS-s SST World History logo

Description

World history is about connections between people. Students need to understand how civilizations and cultures arose, developed, and interacted through conflict and peaceful exchange.

World history content is separated into four eras. The six standards for world history are the same for each era and are applicable to all eras of study. Benchmarks provide guidance on how to apply the standards to each era. The guiding topics column includes key topics fundamental to that era of study. It is the belief of the development committee that the guiding topics, while not required, illustrate multiple ways for students to successfully achieve the standards.
