Proposed Standards for Public Review

Overview and Proposed Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for Social Studies (Word, 203KB)

Meeting Schedule

  • Introductory conference call - Tuesday November 26 4:00 p.m.
    • Agenda - Process of reviewing standards; questions from the group
    • Minutes
      The conference call began at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 26, 2013. Attendees were thanked for their participation in the process of reviewing the proposed financial literacy standards.

      Attendees and the moderator went to the survey on the Survey Monkey site where the review of the standards will be completed. Questions were posed and answered on a variety of topics, such as the scope of the review, could it be completed in stages, etc. A couple of issues with the survey were discussed and set to be remedied.

      Attendees and the moderator looked briefly at the document containing the financial literacy standards currently in use in New York, Georgia, and Virginia. This document was provided to reviewers for comparison as they complete their review.

      The moderator promised to email the link to the proposed standards document so reviewers could print them for ease of review and also the current course description for Economics with Financial Literacy for comparison.

      The survey will remain open for reviewers until midnight on December 17, 2013.

      The call was ended at 4:25 p.m.

  • Consensus conference call - Wednesday December 18 4:00 p.m.
    • Agenda - Results of review; reach consensus on any areas of disagreement
    • Minutes
      At the completion of the survey, there was agreement that approximately 60% of the standards should be adopted as written. A number of others had suggestions for additions/deletions just to the Remarks and Examples portion or ways to set up instruction.

      The call centered on those standards where committee members had comments relating to the quality or content of the standard itself. Each of these standards was discussed individually and consensus reached on a recommendation.

      The process of next steps in the adoption of the standards was discussed, committee members were thanked for their service, and the call was ended at approximately 5:00 p.m.
