United States History in the Secondary School. Teacher's Guide.
Point Pleasant Beach Board of Education, NJ.
This is the guide to a series of ten units that are available for use in the two year course of study required in New Jersey. The major goal of this curriculum is to provide an educational program to increase student involvement and therefore provide more vital learning experiences. The ten topics present a broad spectrum of American civilization: SO 000 379 through SO 000 388. While historical content furnishes the core of study of each topic, the units are interdisciplinary in nature drawing from facts and concepts in political science, economics, sociology, geography, and the humanities. There are a wide variety of learning activities to help the student discover for himself the substance of each topic. In addition, the entire curriculum plan is open-ended so that the activities can be geared to various learning levels and interests. Each unit is divided into six basic sections: overview, objectives, suggested evaluation, learning activities, suggested content guide, suggested resources. A model Social Studies Learning Center provides the environment in which the student can be actively engaged in the learning process, can have easy access to a variety of equipment and materials, and can receive more individualized instruction.
