Social Studies Curriculum Guide: Grade 6. Bulletin 1987, No. 62.
Alabama State Dept. of Education, Montgomery. Div. of Instructional Services.
This curriculum guide is designed to help classroom teachers implement the Alabama Course of Study for the social studies and to be inclusive of the objectives tested by the Stanford Achievement Test. Divided into three sections, section 1 begins with a table of contents that lists what students should learn (student outcomes) in grade six. After each outcome, a page number(s) directs the reader to classroom activities that address the specific outcome. The second section of the guide consists of classroom activities. Each activity is preceded by a description of the areas of grade six social studies covered, the specific student outcomes that are addressed in the activities, and notes for the teachers that convey information important for effectively presenting the activities. The third section summarizes the relationship of student outcomes to the original sources from which the outcomes were taken. The original sources for this curriculum guide were the Alabama Course of Study and the Stanford Achievement Test objectives. This section of the guide was designed to serve as a reference for local school systems that may wish to trace the source of each outcome or to rate each outcome as basic, standard, or advanced. The substance of the guide concerns Canada and Latin America. The topics include understanding the relationship of time to human life in Canada and Latin America; physical geography in Canada and Latin America; customs, traditions, and behaviors; economic systems; historical events; and government controls in certain areas of society in Canada and Latin America.
