Fourth Grade Social Studies Units and Student Readings.
Park Forest Public Schools District 163, IL.
This unit centers about the idea that people of different backgrounds interchange ideas and interact freely when there is open contact among groups within a city. Using Chicago as an example, the subgeneralizations which support this idea deal with immigrant groups, their traditions, cultural identity, and acculturation. Like other units in this series, detailed suggestions for learning activities and cognitive tasks are given, along with references to appropriate multimedia instructional materials. Suggestions for Chicago fieldtrips to supplement this unit are included. Several student readings cited in the guide form a part of this document. See SO 000 584 for a listing of related documents.
