Students will begin examining the changes in government over time and the continual balance between individual rights and the common good. The goal is that students will learn the skills necessary to understand the role of government in their daily lives and be able to engage in government at all levels. These standards help students become thoughtful citizens who are informed, engaged, and committed to the ideas and values of a democratic republic. The knowledge of names and definitions is essential in/for acquiring knowledge; however, high-quality teaching and learning demands more than merely mastering facts and terms. Therefore, in teaching these standards, an inquiry approach is encouraged. Activities and assessments that require students to think, analyze, synthesize, evaluate, compare, contrast, and argue using a civic engagement lens should be emphasized.

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.
