Project Essay. Teacher's Resource Guide for the Nature of Man and His Conflicts. Grade 7.
Dearborn Public Schools, MI.
This course is designed to focus on the individual and the kinds of conflicts with which he is confronted. The individual will develop an understanding of his physical self and of the nature and qualities of appropriate human behavior in a social context. He will understand that each individual, because of his unique biological, psychological, and sociological configuration, conceives ideas differently because he perceives his environment differently. An inductive method of studying man throughout time and around the world is employed. The skill objectives include: 1) skill in locating, appraising, and interpreting data concerning social problems; 2) ability to organize data obtained through research, listening, and observing; 3) ability to express himself orally, in writing, and graphically; 4) ability to participate effectively in groups; and, 5) ability to use critical and reflective thinking in problem solving. The attitudinal objectives are: 1) respect for the worth and dignity of every individual; 2) social and civic responsibility; and, 3) respect for law and legal process. Guides for each of four units contain: an outline of content and purpose, cognitive and affective objectives, suggested learning activities, a bibliography of multimedia materials, and a student bibliography. SO 000 859 describes the project that developed this guide. (SBE)
