With History-Social Science for All: Access for Every Student.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This paper describes six strategies for California teachers to consider in teaching the state's history-social science curriculum to educationally disadvantaged students. The six strategies are: (1) enriching history through literature; (2) connecting history with other learnings; (3) connecting history to personal experience; (4) adapting to different life styles; (5) integrating social participation skills in the curriculum; and (6) linking students to their communities. Classroom activities are suggested in connection with each strategy: these activities are examples of proven instructional methods based on the needs, interests, and backgrounds of educationally disadvantaged students. Ninety-two sample readings for students and a 41-item list of references also are included. (DB)
