About the book:

The California State Board of Education has worked hard with the Academic Stan­ dards Commission to develop history- social science standards that reflect California's commitment to history-social science education. These standards empha­ size historical narrative, highlight the roles of significant individuals throughout history, and convey the rights and obliga­ tions of citizenship. In that spirit the standards proceed chronologically and call attention to the story of America as a noble experiment in a constitutional republic. They recognize that America's ongoing struggle to realize the ideals of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution is the struggle to maintain our beautifully complex national heritage of e pluribus unum. While the standards emphasize Western civilizations as the source of American political institu­ tions, laws, and ideology, they also expect students to analyze the changing political relationships within and among other countries and regions of the world, both throughout history and within the context of contemporary global interdependence. The standards serve as the basis for statewide assessments, curriculum frame­ works, and instructional materials, but methods of instructional delivery remain the responsibility of local educators.
