Man in a Changing World.
Fairfax County Schools, VA.
The sixth level of the social studies curriculum (Fairfax County Public Schools, Virginia), "Man in a Changing World," is designed to maintain a balance between the study of concepts and the development of inquiry skills. Emphasis is given to the role of individual man in several social settings, past and present, Western and non-Western. The content is drawn primarily from the disciplines of anthropology, history, and to a lesser extent, from economics, geography, sociology, and political science. The units developed in the guide are: 1) Man and Culture; 2) Man in the Classical World; 3) Man in the Medieval World; 4) Man and His Search for Freedom (England); 5) Three Modern Faces of Man: Africa South of the Sahara, Japan, Russia. The program utilizes multimedia materials to provide a variety of activities for all students and to prevent reading difficulty from being a stumbling block in achieving social studies objectives, including, records, transparencies, study prints, filmstrips, films, documents, and text and trade books.
