This vague proposal?
"The student is expected to evaluate political choices and decisions that individuals, groups, and nations have made in the past, taking into account historical context, and apply this knowledge to the analysis of choices and decisions faced by contemporary societies."
Or this specific alternative?
"The student should explain
how the British and French response to German remilitarization of the Rhineland
in 1936 strengthened Hitler, and should relate concerns over appeasement
to a major U.S. foreign policy decision during the Cold War."
The Social Studies curriculum is also up for revision. One of our staff served with other conservatives on the state Social Studies committee and proposed this specific alternative (and many others). Conservatives dominated this committee, but the education establishment persists in advocating its own vague standards. Conservatives have offered alternative versions of World History, U.S. History, and Economics TEKS.
We can send copies of these alternative curriculum standards to those involved in curriculum battles at state or local levels.
Interesting character-building stories for young readers, with colorful illustrations. (hardback)
