Social Sciences: Curriculum Guide for Teaching Gifted Children Social Sciences in Grades Four Through Six.
Bruch, Catherine B.
The curriculum guide is intended as an introduction to the study of man and his individuality, creativity, and uniqueness. Portions of such a study are suggested for use with gifted children in grades 4-6. Major objectives relate to the development by gifted students of their own creativity, productivity, and realization of personal potential. Behavioral objectives in the areas of learning skills, cognitive processes, and affective processes are enumerated, and guiding questions and activities for the study of creative man are suggested. Biographical sketches of creative men and women are presented to serve as bases for lessons. Tapescripts of some classroom discussions following use of lessons in the Men and Women of Ideas series are given. The thought processes involved, as reflected by the students' comments, are analyzed. Films about creative persons are listed, as are films which may be useful to teachers for inservice training.
