TO: Principals
FROM: Patricia I. Wright
Assistant Superintendent for Instruction
SUBJECT: Sample Scope and Sequence Guides

As an additional resource to help school divisions develop curricula aligned to the 1995 Standards of Learning, the Virginia Department of Education has developed sample scope and sequence documents for English, mathematics, and science in kindergarten through grade eight and in core high school courses. Sample scope and sequence guides for the revised History and Social Science Standards of Learning will be released later this fall. These sample documents provide guidance on how the essential knowledge, skills, and processes that are identified in the Standards of Learning and the Standards of Learning Teacher Resource Guides may be introduced to students in a logical, sequential, and meaningful manner. They may be accessed on the Internet at http://www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/Instruction/solscope/. For further information, please contact Dr. Patricia I. Wright (mailto:pwright@pen.k12.va.us), assistant superintendent for instruction at 804-225-2979.
