A Multi-Disciplinary Team Approach to "The Man Made World."
Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver.; Colorado Univ., Boulder.
These guidelines were designed to be used in a training program for thirty secondary teachers who planned to implement "The Man Made World" course in their classrooms in the fall of 1970. Emphasis is upon a multi-disciplinary team-teaching approach to help students cope in the real world. Seven chapters are included. Chapter one, the rationale of the course, focuses on the need for today's students to understand the interaction of technological development and social change. Chapter two, objectives and evaluation, suggests teaching techniques, including games, that involve students in relevant learning and in approaches to evaluating the goals and objectives which are established by individual teams. The course encourages student-teacher interaction dynamics which are discussed in chapter three. Hints to administrators and team members are given in chapter four. Chapter five, teacher preparation, emphasizes teacher training and characteristics which are helpful in teaching the course. Laboratory use and equipment is discussed in chapter six. A resource guide presented in chapter seven contains multi-media references to provide insight into the various areas that are an integral part of the course. An appendix includes multi-disciplinary learning activities. Related documents are: ED 016 634; ED 016 635; and ED 019 243. (SJM)
