Systems Planning Literature Response: An Appropriate Strategy for Teaching Geography and Social Studies in the Elementary School.
An approach to teaching geography and social studies in elementary schools that is based on integrating theories of learning into the classroom experience is presented. Specifically, the approach described utilizes essential thinking skills and Bloom's Taxonomy of Cognition in a question-asking framework to be used with literary selections. Cognitive, physical, and creative domains are exercised through activities planned to simulate, reinforce or extend life experiences exemplified in the literary work. A number of explanatory figures appear in the document. (DB)
