SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Social Science Strand, Unit 9, Grade 3, Teacher's Guide.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Instructional and assessment activities for grade 3 social sciences are presented in this teacher's guide to unit nine of the social sciences strand. Focus, objectives, and materials for each activity are given in English and Spanish, with teacher instructions only in Spanish. The unit expands the conceptual field of the child in terms of the nation as a community; each of its four kits treats a spiraling question and is designed for instruction of two to three weeks. Kit 33 examines who the individual is, as students learn about the territory explored and colonized by the Spanish and the historical backgrounds of states along with their resource, need, and income relationships. Kit 34 revolves around what the individual's alternatives are as students trace their ethnic backgrounds and study historical landmarks, events and traditions. Kit 35 questions how one can initiate change with looks at past and present conflicts. Kit 36 concentrates on what happens as a result of change as it compares past and present life styles and identifies the impact man and environment have on each other. Seatwork and group activities are presented. Content sources include stories, newspapers, maps, dramatizations, research work, group reports, guided discussion, and the child's own experience. (DS)
