The Alaska State Standards represent a statewide effort to describe what students in the state should know and be able to do as a result of their public school experience. The activities developed for Eight Stars of Gold: The Story of Alaska's Flag are based on specific Alaska State Standards found in the standards booklets and available on-line to view or download at the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development website.

Also available through the Department of Education and Early Development is Frameworks, a valuable resource for designing lessons and assessments that help educators apply the standards in classrooms.

We encourage teachers to regularly include social studies and civics education in classroom instruction while focusing on specific standards in any discipline. For more information we recommend the Lt. Governor's Office. This site includes the Democracy Project and a focus on statewide activities for Alaska Day.
