Economics Education: A Guide for New York Schools. Grades K-6. Project PROBE.
Elliott, Richard D.; And Others
A series of inquiry plans for the systematic development of learning and thinking skills are provided in this teaching guide. The materials for each grade level include: 1) a summary of the plans, justification of them, identification of the concepts and content that the students will explore, and an outline of the instruction strategy; 2) a statement of the objectives of each topic concerning skill development and the level of performance expected at the close of a planned activity; 3) a description of strategy including specific activities, a questions that should be used, and the inquiry model or plan to be applied to a series of events or situations throughout the year. Since the student is expected to identify the content he needs, in most cases the content is not described. In addition, the selection of instructional materials is left to the teacher based on what is available and the media the students need. Evaluation techniques can be translated from the descriptions of the performance objectives. This guide is not intended as a total program for social studies in any grade. The second part of the guide (SO 000 196) contains the materials for grades 7 through 11. (SBE)
