Description The Kentucky Academic Standards - Social Studies (grade-cluster standards for K-3 and high school, grade-level standards for 4-8) include a strand of standards (“Big Idea”) for Government and Civics. According to the standards, “the primary purpose of social studies is to help students develop the ability to make informed decisions as citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world.” They promote the belief “that students must develop more than an understanding of social studies content. They must also be able to apply the content perspectives of several academic fields of the social studies to personal and public experiences.” According to the standards, “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.”
