This resource guide outlines one of a series of units for grade 2. Information on Soviet culture is included for the teacher, describing the urban site, the home, social structure of the family, role relationships in the family, functions of the family in the Soviet Union, and the socialization process. Major concepts related to culture, social organization, social process, location and site are defined, and generalizations, skills, and attitudes to be developed are outlined. Some 60 teaching strategies are presented in the usual format of the series. Instructional aids are listed for each activity, and a general bibliography is also included. Appendices present pupil materials designed for the unit, such as reprints from SOVIET LIFE showing children's poems in English and Russian, student activity worksheets, maps, stories, and directions for some Russian children's games. The total unit sequence for grades 1 and 2 is outlined in SO 001 287; other guides in the elementary social studies series are SO 001 275 through SO 001 286. (Author/JSB)
