WHAT MAKES THINGS GO, TEACHER'S GUIDE.
BRODY, LARRY; AND OTHERS
SIX FIFTH-GRADE SCIENCE UNITS ARE PRESENTED--SOUND AND LIGHT IN COMMUNICATION, LIVING THINGS, WEATHER, EARTH AND ITS RESOURCES, MOTION AND FOREIGN TRANSPORTATION, AND ELECTROMAGNETS. THE INTEREST LEVEL IS APPROPRIATE FOR FIFTH-GRADERS, BUT THREE READING ABILITY LEVELS, GRADES 1, 3, AND 5, ARE PROVIDED. THE TEACHER IS THUS ENABLED TO MOTIVATE CHILDREN THROUGH INTEREST-AROUSING FIELD TRIPS, SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS, OR DEMONSTRATIONS, AND THEN PROVIDE THEM WITH READING MATERIAL DESIGNED TO FIT BOTH INTEREST AND ABILITY. THE MANUAL IS AN EXPLORATORY EFFORT, DESIGNED BOTH TO IMPROVE LEARNING OF FIFTH-GRADE PUPILS IN THE CURRICULAR AREAS OF SCIENCE AND READING, AND TO ILLUSTRATE TO TEACHERS HOW THEY MAY CONSTRUCT AND ADAPT MATERIALS TO MEET THE EMERGING NEEDS OF DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN. A LIST OF WORDS DERIVING FROM SCIENCE CONTENT AND SUPPLEMENTARY NEEDS IS PROVIDED FOR PURPOSES OF PRETEACHING. SUCH VOCABULARY SHOULD BE TAUGHT CONCRETELY, USING SCIENCE EXPERIMENT MATERIAL. DRILL SHEETS IN LANGUAGE ARTS AND READING SKILLS ARE TO BE USED AFTER PUPILS HAVE READ APPROPRIATE SELECTIONS AND SEEK TO EVALUATE THE EXTENT TO WHICH ESSENTIAL READING SKILLS HAVE BEEN MASTERED. SCIENCE DRILL SHEETS TEST LEARNING OF CONTENT. A BIBLIOGRAPHY AND A LIST OF USEFUL AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS ARE APPENDED.
