Are you familiar with the education standards developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics? The science standards developed by the National Research Council? The science "literacy goals" proposed by the American Association for the Advancement of Science? In Content Knowledge you=ll find information on all the major subject areas, organized to allow you and others in your school or district to quickly and easily explore the variety of education standards and benchmarks in use today.
The authors have consulted 137 national and state-level documents that address standards and benchmarks. By putting all the standards in a clear, consistent format, they have streamlined the process of developing standards-based curriculum and instruction in K-12 mathematics, science, history, English language arts, the arts, civics, economics, foreign language, geography, health, physical education, technology, behavioral studies, and life skills.
In each subject, you=ll find clear and succinct summaries of standards and benchmarks at various grade levels, such as K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Benchmarks are keyed to three broad categories of knowledge (procedural, declarative, or contextual knowledge), making it easy to identify targets for learning at every level. There are more than 256 standards and 4,100 benchmarks in all.
In this edition, the authors have updated five subject areas: English language arts, mathematics, science, foreign language, and technology. The content in all five of these subjects has been strengthened with information from supporting standards documents and other reports issued since the release of the 2nd edition of Content Knowledge in 1997.
Whether used as a resource for creating new standards or as a reference for validating existing standards, Content Knowledge remains an indispensable resource for every school.
