Maryland State and Local Governments: An Instructional Unit for the Eighth Grade Social Studies Course "Maryland Studies."
Lewis, Wanda B.; Stamm, Michael J.
An eighth grade social studies unit on Maryland state and local governments contains three sections. In the first section, a two-column chart matches grade level objectives related to Maryland governments to specific activities discussed in the next section. A content outline is divided into sections on introductory materials, including vocabulary and constitutional background, state government, local government, and problems and issues. Section 2 contains activities to implement the unit. Examples of activities are crossword puzzles, worksheets, group projects, readings, and simulations. Each activity is presented in a chart which shows title, grade level objectives, vocabulary, skill objectives, content, activity description, materials needed, and adaptation procedures for other levels. Each chart is followed by student instructions and handouts. The final section is a five-entry bibliography. (LP)
