Communities Around Us, Grade Two. The TABA Social Studies Curriculum.
Durkin, Mary C.; And Others
In this teacher's guide for grade 2, three common types of communities--farming, commuting, and urban--are presented for study. The curriculum's objectives, 11 key concepts taken up in grades 1-8, and a list of 20 behavioral objectives to be attained by the end of grade 2 are given. The year's program is organized into three units: (1) "Community needs are met by groups of people engaged in many related activities." (2) The nature of a particular community will influence the kinds of services it needs." (3) "The people of a community organize in different ways to attain their goals." Each unit contains learning objectives, suggested learning activities, notes for the teacher, and evaluation exercises. Teaching strategies for cognitive skills and for attitudes, feelings, and values are also included. (LH)
