This booklet sets forth four core learning goals in government for Maryland's high school students. Divided into four sections that correspond to the goals, the booklet lists both diverse content indicators in each section and the respective thinking and communication skills. Goal 1's Indicator 1.1.1 states: "The student will analyze historic documents to determine the basic principles of the United States government and apply them to real-world situations." Under this indicator in the booklet are nine thinking skills goals, such as "The student will develop alternative perspectives or ways of thinking and acting in complex situations," and six communication skills goals, such as "The student will construct spoken and other messages in forms appropriate to purposes, audiences, and situations." Goals 2, 3, and 4 have similar indicators and goals for thinking skills and communication skills, in ascending spheres of difficulty. (BT)
