                                            Overview
In this document, Junior Achievement programs are correlated to the Hawaii Content and Performance
Standards (HCPS III) for social studies for grades K-12 as well as the Common Core State Standards in
English/ Language Arts and mathematics.

studies disciplines such as economics, geography, history, government, and civics while incorporating
mathematical concepts and reasoning and language arts skills.

any given standard, but is designed to show how it can enhance or complement efforts to do so. The
flexibility of the programs and supplementary materials allow specific content or skills to be addressed in
depth by the teacher and/or business volunteer as needed.
