Everybody is Somebody. Grade 3.
Feeley, Dorothy M.
The overall objectives and teaching techniques for the supplementary primary grade social studies units are described in SO 001 457. The specific objectives of this unit for grade three are: 1) to show that ethnic differences are superficial, that we are all human beings and differences are a part of the American heritage; 2) to explore the various meanings of Black Power; 3) to understand the background and achievements of the people of the past, present, and future; 4) to enhance the awareness of the customs, life styles, and backgrounds of the various ethnic groups; and, 5) to develop within each child a strong feeling of patriotism and democracy based on a strong knowledge of his American heritage, and a sense of dignity and self-respect. Each section on Blacks, Puerto Ricans, American Chinese, and the American Indian contains: 1) background on their native country including history, geography, culture and life styles, economy, and government; 2) American heritage or background; 3) current views and problems; 4) contributions of the group and specific individuals in politics, exploration, education, athletics, entertainment, humanities, business, and science and technology; 5) suggested activities; 6) student evaluation tips; 7) student and teacher references; 8) audiovisual aids such as filmstrips, music, films, recordings. SO 001 458 is the unit for grade two. (Author/SBE)
