United States History. Part 1. Grade 9.
Oklahoma City Public School System, OK.
This is the first semester teaching guide for a ninth and tenth grade United States History course. It is a survey of the nation's story in chronological order, and is designed to assist the student in forming a mental time-line of events and issues. The stress in history is on an understanding of important movements, trends, concepts, and issues rather than the memorization of numerous and isolated details. Critical thinking, inquiry, and problem solving skills will be developed. In this course students will: 1) systematically gather pertinent information regarding a problem; 2) share information with fellow students in a variety of ways; 3) form accurate generalizations from facts; 4) distinguish between assumptions and facts; 5) participate in discussions thoughtfully and courteously; and, 6) state conclusions which are supported by facts and reasons. Besides class discussion and reporting, the learning activities include: role playing, creative dramatics, display making, music appreciation, and creative writing. The content for the 34 lessons, texts, and other resources are also outlined in detail. For related curriculum guides see SO 001 272 and SO 001 273. (Author/AWW)
