Junior High School Curriculum Guide for Social Studies.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
The behavioral objectives, aims, and premises of this curriculum are similar to SO 002 500. This framework provides a sequential course outline for grades 7, 8, and 9, attempting to motivate students to investigate value issues with the aid of concepts and processes presented in an inter-disciplinary manner. The outline is based on the theme "Man, Culture, and Technology" in pre-industrial, Afro-Asian and Western Societies. Value issues relating to the theme are presented and methods of developing concepts are provided. A flexible course outline allows curriculum decision-making at the classroom, school, and district levels and suggests that approximately one-third of the time remain un-structured for current interest topics chosen by students and teachers. Special features include suggestions for the use of teaching aids and lists of additional reference books. (Author/SJM)
