United States and Canada--Societies in Transition, Grade Five. The TABA Social Studies Curriculum.
Duvall, Alice; And Others
The technological and cultural changes that have affected the United States and Canada since the 15th century are the subjects of this teacher's guide for a fifth-grade social studies course. Six units are presented: (1) "New discoveries result from the application of previously learned knowledge to the solution of current problems." (2) "The life style of a culture is shaped by the contributions of groups which make up that culture." (3) "Conflict may develop among groups when goals and expectations differ." (4) "A mobile people tend to develop a way of life that differs from that in established communities." (5) "Technological development contributes to the nature and extent of cultural change." (6) "The physical and cultural resources of an area encourage specialization in the use of land." Nineteen behavioral objectives to be mastered during the year and the rationales behind them are given. Also listed are the objectives of the curriculum (grades 1-8) of which this guide is a part, and the 11 key concepts emphasized at all levels of the curriculum. Teaching strategies for cognitive skills, attitudes, feelings, and values are included. (LH)
