TEACHING UNITS FOR CHALLENGING THE MORE ABLE STUDENT IN THE CLASSROOM.
GOLDSMITH, JOHN; AND OTHERS
THE GUIDE OFFERED THE TEACHER ACTIVITY UNITS THAT SHE COULD USE TO ENRICH THE CURRICULUM AND TO CHALLENGE THE MORE ABLE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENT. THE UNITS ARE DIVIDED INTO THE HISTORICAL GEOLOGY OF NATURAL WONDERS OF THE WORLD, HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT OF ENGLISH AND WRITING, AND THE FOLKLORE ASPECT OF LITERATURE. THE TWO MUSIC UNITS WERE DIVIDED INTO INSTRUMENTS AND OPERA. POETRY AND SOCIAL STUDIES WERE THE SIXTH AND SEVENTH UNITS, AND THE LAST UNIT "SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON" WAS USED TO DEVELOP CRITICAL THINKING IN LITERATURE. A DESCRIPTION OF THIS LAST UNIT STARTED WITH THE TEACHER'S READING THE BOOK TO THE CLASS, THEN HER INITIATING BIOGRAPHICAL AND BACKGROUND RESEARCH (SUCH AS MATERIAL ON THE AUTHOR.) GEOGRAPHICAL RESEARCH REQUIRED THE STUDENTS TO MAKE A MAP DRAWN FROM LOCATIONS DESCRIBED IN THE BOOK. SCIENTIFIC AWARENESS COULD BE EMPHASIZED TOO. ART DISPLAYS COULD BE SET UP AND CREATIVE WRITING COULD BE UTILIZED TO GO WITH THE DISPLAYS. A BIBLIOGRAPHY WAS INCLUDED.
