STATE SUPERINTENDENT OF EDUCATION’S MESSAGE Dear Educator: Social Studies, the integrated study of the social sciences and humanities, promotes competence in economics, geography, history, and political science. The Alabama Course of Study: Social Studies (Bulletin 2004, No. 18) incorporates each of these into a K-12 social studies program that emphasizes responsible citizenship. This document encourages students to become informed, responsible, and participating citizens at the local, state, national, and international levels. It is hoped that this curriculum will enable them to become literate and analytical students who make informed decisions and are knowledgeable of the world and its people. Content standards within this document provide a sound framework for economic, geographic, historical, and political literacy. A comprehensive core curriculum for students at all grade levels provides rigorous course content and high-level academic standards delineating expected achievement by all students. The Social Studies State Course of Study Committee and Task Force, composed of educators and business and community leaders; the State Board of Education; and I believe a sound program of instruction has been developed to guide local school systems in the implementation of their social studies curricula.
