Rhode Island Grade Span Expectations for Geography

About this resource:

Title en-US:  Rhode Island Grade Span Expectations for Geography
Description en-US:  The Rhode Island Grade Span Expectations (GSEs) for Social Studies have been developed as a means to identify the content knowledge and skills expected of all students (grades K-high school). GSEs are meant to capture the "big ideas" of civics and history that can be taught and assessed, without narrowing the curriculum locally. They are not intended to represent the full curriculum for instruction and assessment locally, nor are they meant to simply replace existing social studies curriculum. The set of GSEs includes concepts and skills intended to be for local assessment purposes only. Generally speaking, Grade Span Expectations – at any grade – represent content knowledge and skills that have been introduced instructionally at least one to two years before students are expected to demonstrate confidence in applying them independently.
