Specific objectives for grade one are outlined in the guide and three main units of study are presented: 1) The Role Individuals Assume Within the Family; 2) Interdependence of Family Members; and, 3) Cooperation of Family Members. Cultures of Mexico and Africa are those selected for comparative study, as well as optional study of American Indian culture. Each of the three major units is introduced by an explanation of concepts to be developed, a list of objectives, and an outline of curriculum content. Teaching strategies for each concept are suggested, such as discussion questions, student activities, interdisciplinary projects, and games. References to instructional materials are given for specific basic textbooks, supplementary textbooks, related teaching guides, library books, films, filmstrips.
