ABSTRACT
The social studies teacher needs to choose carefully those objectives that pupils are to achieve. The learning opportunities are to be aligned with the stated objectives, leaving leeway for pupils' questions and comments about course content. Quality evaluation procedures need to be used so that it can be ascertained what pupils have achieved and learned. Optimal achievement is a must!
