  • SST-07.C.03 Describe the rights and liberties of individuals.
  • SST-07.C.04 Investigate the role and responsibilities of citizenship in society.

Description

These standards band grades 6-12 in civics & government. It should be noted that some topics will overlap while others will exclusively appear in either middle or high school. Throughout the grade band, a basic knowledge of the foundation, role, and impact of government is emphasized. 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.

 6-8 Social Studies

 Geography Domain

BPS-s SST Geography logo

Standards

  • SST-07.G.01 Describe the physical processes that shape the Earth’s surface and how these affect the lives of people who live there.
  • SST-07.G.02 Analyze the movement of people, goods, ideas, technology, etc. throughout the world.
  • SST-07.G.03 Analyze the unifying physical and human characteristics of a region and their formal and informal boundaries.
  • SST-07.G.04 Use geographic tools to locate both the absolute and relative location of places and regions around the world.
  • SST-07.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.
