Here's a framework for designing your own performance-based curriculum. Based on the standards set by the National Council for the Social Studies, this guide presents examples drawn from real-life contexts, with specific benchmarks for Grades 3, 5, 8, and 12. These practical tools help you assess your program's effectiveness on a continuing basis.
