Course Outcomes

HSE Contemporary World Problems (BASED 40)

  1. Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary that makes clear the relationships among the key details and ideas. 
  2. Read and comprehend history/social studies texts at a College & Career Ready level of complexity.
  3. Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words in order to address a question or solve a problem.
  4. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions (including self-generated question) or to solve a problem, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation.
  5. Integrate and evaluate information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally.

Math 1-4 (51-54)

    While each course focuses on specific math concepts which build from basic to more complex operations, teaching and learning strategies will integrate the following 8 standards for mathematical practice.

    1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them (CCRS: MP.1)
    2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively (CCRS: MP.2)
    3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others (CCRS: MP.3)
    4. Model with mathematics (CCRS: MP.4)
    5. Use appropriate tools strategically (CCRS: MP.5)
    6. Attend to precision (CCRS: MP.6)
    7. Look for and make use of structure (CCRS: MP.7)
    8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning (CCRS: MP.8)

    *Learning outcomes for these courses are the Standards for Mathematical Practice in the College and Career Readiness Standards.
