New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of General Education Curriculum Development.
Teachers can use this fifth-grade level social studies framework to develop programs best suited to their students' needs. There are two main sections to the guide: a teacher notebook and a syllabus. The teacher notebook elaborates on the key features of the program, suggesting relevant classroom applications. Discussed are concept and skill goals, student evaluation, linking literature to social studies, developing citizenship competency, and developing participation projects. A teacher self-checklist for classroom climate is also included. The syllabus begins with a grade level overview. The fifth grade program stresses geographic, economic, and social/cultural understandings related to the United States, Canada, and Latin America. This overview is followed by generalizations for the K-6 program. A key to symbols, used in the syllabus to encourage interdisciplinary planning and a holistic view of classroom instruction, is provided. The final section of the syllabus includes the following for each concept taught in grade 5: course content, learning activities, skills and attitudes, evaluation procedures, and resource materials.
