Western Civilization--Perspectives on Change, Grade Seven. The TABA Social Studies Curriculum.
Fraenkel, Jack R.; Duvall, Alice
Part of a curriculum development project for teaching social studies concepts (see also ED 032 318-ED 032 323 and TE 499 894), this grade 7 teaching guide deals with factors effecting changes in Western civilization. Five units are presented: (1) "Man's ways of living affect, and are affected by, the physical and social environment in which he lives." (early man) (2) "The actions of a people are influenced by the values they hold." (early Greeks) (3) "Ideas and societies change as they come in contact with the ideas and achievements of other societies." (Roman Empire) (4) "How quickly any change comes about depends not only on the nature of the change itself, but also on the pressures for and against that change." (post-Roman Empire) (5) "The beliefs, activities, and values of people are influenced by the times in which they live." (Renaissance). The objectives of the curriculum, 11 key concepts to be studied in all grades, and 19 behavioral objectives to be attained in grade 7 are listed. Strategies for teaching attitudes and cognitive skills are given; and "organizing ideas," suggested learning activities, notes for the teacher, and evaluation exercises are provided for each unit.
