Developmental Reading in Social Studies; Discovery and Exploration. A Guide for Teachers, Grade 8, Revised.
Fried, Marian; And Others
This unit guide, first in a series of seven, is designed to provide eighth-grade teachers with materials for achieving the dual objectives of providing reading and study skills instruction while developing facts, attitudes, and concepts of social studies. Information about discovery and exploration is found in two texts: "This Is America's Story," for use with average classes and "Exploring American History," for use with modified classes. Each chapter of material contains exercises dealing with general vocabulary building, specific social studies vocabulary, terms dealing with people, places, and things, and tests for these words. Other exercises deal with note taking, recall, and prereading skills such as use of subchapter and chapter headings and pictures. Combined questions applicable to both textbooks are also provided.
