Teacher's Guide to Imagination Unlimited. The MATCH Book Project; Prototype Edition.
Williams, Susan; Williamson, Sharon
The idea of this box of multimedia instructional materials is to surround the children with curious and wonderful objects and experiences which will stimulate them to self-expression. The kit provides a set of unusual objects: two movies about a rainshower, one from a weatherman's point of view and one as seen through the eyes of an artist; a set of pictograph word cards to be used in a game; and 25 photographs to interpret. The teacher's guide gives the procedure for 11 lessons which are designed to allow imaginative play with words in order to learn how words relate to each other, how their associations vary, and how their meanings shift and change. Throughout the box, emphasis is placed upon careful observation and individual interpretation of events. Supplements include an inventory of the box; a list of books, films, other related projects, and a short descriptive note about the MATCH Box Project. (JY)
