Program Objectives for Social Studies. Revised.
Alvarez, Adoracion A.; And Others
The guide lists program objectives for the social studies curriculum used at the Kendall Demonstration Elementary School (KDES) with deaf and hearing impaired students. Terminal objectives are listed, and teachers are encouraged to supplement them with sub-objectives and activities. Objectives are said to cover preschool through middle school levels. Five basic areas of social studies are addressed (sample subtopics in parentheses): geography (map skills, climate/weather, transportation, ecology); sociology/anthropology (family, communities, social development, cultural diversity); economics (career education, production, monetary system); history; and political science (citizenship, rules and laws, government). An evaluation report reviews findings regarding the curriculum's scholarship, usefulness, equity, communicability, appeal, and overall quality. (CL)
