									Note to High School US History Teachers from the 2010-2011 Curriculum Review Committee:

We wanted to take a moment to let you know how we approached this document this year. While trying to unpack the curriculum, we
tried to approach the document from the perspective of a teacher new to the profession or just new to the course. While every
“knowledge target” is potentially a question on the End of Course test, we felt it would be beneficial to attempt to prioritize what we
could. We look to individual PLC’s to take it to the next step.

Therefore, all items retain their designation of “essential,” but we wanted to suggest the following:

      Maintenance (indicated by *): These are items that experience has suggested students have a solid foundation to scaffold from
       previous courses. We used this designator sparingly, only denoting items we feel confident most students have memory of.

      Important (indicated by **): These are items that we feel students have received in depth instruction on in pervious courses,
       and will only need to be reminded of the appropriate definition and significance.

      Nice to Know (indicated by ***): These are items that we feel are less likely to make up a large portion of the EOC, and
       therefore do not need the kind of emphasis that other terms do.

Terms in bold indicate that they are part of the US History academic vocabulary that was included in the 2010-2011 session for
vertical alignment. Not all terms appear in the Curriculum Guide, as some of the academic vocabulary is more “macro,” while many
of the “knowledge targets” are more “micro.”

Please forward any suggestions for next year to the Central Office!
