KY.CC. Core Content for Assessment v.4.1.

SS-06-1. Government and Civics: The study of government and civics equips students to understand the nature of government and the unique characteristics of representative democracy in the United States, including its fundamental principles, structure and the role of citizens. Understanding the historical development of structures of power, authority, and governance and their evolving functions in contemporary U.S. society and other parts of the world is essential for developing civic competence. An understanding of civic ideals and practices of citizenship is critical to full participation in society and is a central purpose of the social studies.

SS-06-1.1. Formation of Governments
SS-06-1.1.1. Students will compare purposes and sources of power in the most common forms of government (monarchy, democracy, republic, dictatorship) in the present day. DOK 2
SS-06-1.1.2. Students will describe and give examples to support how present day democratic governments function to preserve and protect the rights (e.g., voting), liberty and property of their citizens by making, enacting and enforcing appropriate rules and laws. DOK 3

SS-06-2. Cultures and Societies: Culture is the way of life shared by a group of people, including their ideas and traditions. Cultures reflect the values and beliefs of groups in different ways (e.g., art, music, literature, religion); however, there are universals (e.g., food, clothing, shelter, communication) connecting all cultures. Culture influences viewpoints, rules and institutions in a global society. Students should understand that people form cultural groups throughout the United States and the World, and that issues and challenges unite and divide them.

SS-06-2.1. Elements of Culture
SS-06-2.1.1. Students will explain how elements of culture (e.g., language, the arts, customs, beliefs, literature) define specific groups in the global world of the present day and may result in unique perspectives. DOK 2

SS-06-3. Economics: Economics includes the study of production, distribution and consumption of goods and services. Students need to understand how their economic decisions affect them, others, the nation and the world. The purpose of economic education is to enable individuals to function effectively both in their own personal lives and as citizens and participants in an increasingly connected world economy. Students need to understand the benefits and costs of economic interaction and interdependence among people, societies and governments.

SS-06-3.1. Scarcity
SS-06-3.1.1. Students will explain and give examples of how scarcity requires individuals, groups and governments in the present day to make decisions about how productive resources (natural resources, human resources capital goods) are used. DOK 2
SS-06-3.2. Economic Systems and Institutions
SS-06-3.2.1. Students will compare present day economic systems (traditional, command, market, mixed). DOK 2
SS-06-3.3. Markets
SS-06-3.3.1. Students will explain how in present day market economies, the prices of goods and services are determined by supply and demand. DOK 2
SS-06-3.4. Production, Distribution, and Consumption
SS-06-3.4.1. Students will explain ways in which the basic economic questions about the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services are addressed in the present day.
SS-06-3.4.3. Students will explain how international economic activities are interdependent in the present day. DOK 2

SS-06-4. Geography: Geography includes the study of the five fundamental themes of location, place, regions, movement and human/environmental interaction. Students need geographic knowledge to analyze issues and problems to better understand how humans have interacted with their environment over time, how geography has impacted settlement and population, and how geographic factors influence climate, culture, the economy and world events. A geographic perspective also enables students to better understand the past and present and to prepare for the future.

SS-06-4.1. The Use of Geographic Tools
SS-06-4.1.1. Students will use a variety of geographic tools (maps, photographs, charts, graphs, databases, satellite images) to interpret patterns and locations on Earth's surface in the present day. DOK 3
SS-06-4.1.2. Students will describe how different factors (e.g., rivers, mountains, plains) affect where human activities are located in the present day.
SS-06-4.2. Regions
SS-06-4.2.1. Students will describe how regions in the present day are made distinctive by human characteristics (e.g., dams, roads, urban centers) and physical characteristics (e.g., mountains, bodies of water, valleys) that create advantages and disadvantages for human activities (e.g., exploration, migration, trade, settlement, development). DOK 2
SS-06-4.2.2. Students will describe and give examples of how places and regions in the present day change over time as technologies, resources and knowledge become available. DOK 2
SS-06-4.3. Patterns
SS-06-4.3.1. Students will describe patterns of human settlement in the present day and explain how these patterns are influenced by human needs. DOK 2
SS-06-4.3.2. Students will explain why and give examples of how human populations may change and/or migrate because of factors such as war, famine, disease, economic opportunity and technology in the present day. DOK 3
SS-06-4.4. Human-Environment Interaction
SS-06-4.4.1. Students will explain how technology in the present day assists human modification (e.g., irrigation, clearing land, building roads) of the physical environment in regions. DOK 2
SS-06-4.4.2. Students will describe ways in which the physical environment (e.g., natural resources, physical geography, natural disasters) both promotes and limits human activities (e.g., exploration, migration, trade, settlement, development) in the present day. DOK 2
SS-06-4.4.3. Students will explain how the natural resources of a place or region impact its political, social and economic development in the present day.
SS-06-4.4.4. Students will explain how individual and group perspectives impact the use of natural resources (e.g., urban development, recycling) in the present day.

SS-06-5. Historical Perspective: History is an account of events, people, ideas and their interaction over time that can be interpreted through multiple perspectives. In order for students to understand the present and plan for the future, they must understand the past. Studying history engages students in the lives, aspirations, struggles, accomplishments and failures of real people. Students need to think in an historical context in order to understand significant ideas, beliefs, themes, patterns and events, and how individuals and societies have changed over time in Kentucky, the United States and the World.

SS-06-5.1. The Factual and Interpretive Nature of History
SS-06-5.1.1. Students will use a variety of tools (e.g., primary and secondary sources) to describe and explain historical events and conditions and to analyze the perspectives of different individuals and groups (e.g., gender, race, region, ethnic group, age, economic status, religion, political group) in present day regions.

KY.PS. Program of Studies 2006

SS-6-CS. Big Idea: Cultures and Societies - Culture is the way of life shared by a group of people, including their ideas and traditions. Cultures reflect the values and beliefs of groups in different ways (e.g., art, music, literature, religion); however, there are universals connecting all cultures. Culture influences viewpoints, rules, and institutions in a global society. Students should understand that people form cultural groups throughout the United States and the World, and that issues and challenges unite and divide them. (Academic Expectations 2.16, 2.17)

SS-6-CS-S-1. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will demonstrate an understanding (e.g., speak, draw, write, sing, create) of the complexity of culture by exploring cultural elements (e.g., beliefs, customs/traditions, languages, skills, literature, the arts) of diverse groups and explaining how culture serves to define present day groups and may result in unique perspectives
SS-6-CS-U-1. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that culture is a system of beliefs, knowledge, institutions, customs/traditions, languages and skills shared by a group of people. Through a society's culture, individuals learn the relationships, structures, patterns and processes to be members of the society.
SS-6-CS-U-2. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that cultures develop social institutions (e.g., government, economy, education, religion, family) to structure society, influence behavior and respond to human needs.
SS-6-CS-U-3. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that interactions among individuals and groups assume various forms (e.g., compromise, cooperation, conflict, competition) and are influenced by culture.
SS-6-CS-U-4. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that culture affects how people in a society behave in relation to groups and their environment.
SS-6-CS-U-5. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that an appreciation of the diverse complexity of cultures is essential in our global society.

SS-6-E. Big Idea: Economics - Economics includes the study of production, distribution and consumption of goods and services. Students need to understand how their economic decisions affect them, others, the nation and the world. The purpose of economic education is to enable individuals to function effectively both in their own personal lives and as citizens and participants in an increasingly connected world economy. Students need to understand the benefits and costs of economic interaction and interdependence among people, societies, and governments. (Academic Expectations 2.18)

SS-6-E-S-1. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will demonstrate an understanding of the nature of limited resources and scarcity, using a variety of print and non-print sources (e.g., news media, news magazines, textbook, Internet) to investigate present day economic problems within the U.S. and in world regions:
SS-6-E-S-1.a) Explain how scarcity requires individuals, groups and governments to make decisions about the use of productive resources (e.g., natural resources, human resources and capital goods)
SS-6-E-S-1.b) Compare economic systems (e.g., traditional, command, market, mixed)
SS-6-E-S-1.c) Explain how the prices of goods and services are determined by supply and demand in market economies
SS-6-E-S-2. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will demonstrate an understanding of markets by providing scenarios to illustrate how goods and services are exchanged; explain how money can be used to express the market value of goods and services; describe the relationship between money and ease of trading, borrowing, investing and saving; analyze the connections between economic conditions and current events of the present day
SS-6-E-S-3. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will investigate the production and distribution of goods and services in present day societies:
SS-6-E-S-3.c) Analyze examples that demonstrate interdependence of international economic activities
SS-6-E-U-1. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that the basic economic problem confronting individuals, societies and governments across present day geographic regions is scarcity: as a result of scarcity, economic choices and decisions must be made.
SS-6-E-U-2. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that economic systems (e.g., traditional, command, market, mixed) and a variety of fundamental economic concepts (e.g., supply and demand, opportunity cost) affect individuals, societies and governments of the present day.
SS-6-E-U-3. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that individuals, businesses and governments must make economic decisions about the use of resources in the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services.
SS-6-E-U-4. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that markets are institutional arrangements that enable buyers and sellers to exchange goods and services.
SS-6-E-U-5. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that our global economy provides for a level of interdependence among individuals, regions and nations of the present day.

SS-6-G. Big Idea: Geography - Geography includes the study of the five fundamental themes of location, place, regions, movement and human/environmental interaction. Students need geographic knowledge to analyze issues and problems to better understand how humans have interacted with their environment over time, how geography has impacted settlement and population, and how geographic factors influence climate, culture, the economy and world events. A geographic perspective also enables students to better understand the past and present and to prepare for the future. (Academic Expectations 2.19)

SS-6-G-S-1. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will demonstrate an understanding of patterns on the Earth's surface, using a variety of geographic tools (e.g., maps, globes, charts, graphs, satellite images):
SS-6-G-S-1.a) Locate, in absolute and relative terms, landforms and bodies of water
SS-6-G-S-1.b) Locate and interpret patterns on Earth's surface (e.g., how different factors, such as rivers, mountains and plains affect where human activities are located)
SS-6-G-S-2. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will investigate regions of the Earth's surface using information from print and non-print sources (e.g., books, films, magazines, Internet, geographic tools):
SS-6-G-S-2.a) Explain relationships between and among physical characteristics (e.g., mountains, bodies of water, valleys) of present day regions and how they are made distinctive by human characteristics (e.g., dams, roads, urban centers); describe advantages and disadvantages for human activities (e.g., exploration, migration, trade, settlement) that resulted
SS-6-G-S-2.b) Describe patterns of human settlement in the present day; explain relationships between these patterns and human needs; analyze how factors (e.g., war, famine, disease, economic opportunity, technology) impact human migration today
SS-6-G-S-2.c) Evaluate how availability of technology, resources and knowledge causes places and regions in the present day to change
SS-6-G-S-3. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will investigate interactions among human activities and the physical environment in the present day:
SS-6-G-S-3.a) Explain cause and effect relationships between the natural resources of a place or region and its political, social, and economic development
SS-6-G-S-3.b) Explain how people modify the physical environment (e.g., dams, roads, bridges) to meet their needs in different regions
SS-6-G-S-3.c) Describe how the physical environment can promote or restrict human activities (e.g., exploration, migration, trade, settlement, development) in the present day
SS-6-G-S-3.d) Describe how individual and group perspectives impact the use (e.g., urban development, recycling) of natural resources using current events
SS-6-G-U-1. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that the use of geographic tools (e.g., maps, globes, photographs, models, charts, graphs, databases, and satellite images) and mental maps helps interpret information, analyze patterns and spatial data, and solve geographic issues in the present day.
SS-6-G-U-2. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that patterns emerge as humans move, settle, and interact on Earth's surface and can be identified by examining the location of physical and human characteristics, how they are arranged, and why they are in particular locations.
