Social Studies and the Volunteer. First Draft.
Oklahoma City Public School System, OK.
Five units, designed as tools and guides for volunteers assisting students and teachers in skill development, are presented in this manual focusing on "instructional re-enforcement" within the social studies classroom. Unit I presents ideas for developing group dynamic skills in an inquiry centered classroom, lists suggestions for discussion group leaders, and includes two 9th grade history lesson plans on discovery process. Ways in which a teacher aide can assist the teacher and students in a classroom situation, locating, gathering, organizing, and evaluating information on a social studies topic, are identified and developed in Unit II which focuses on reference skills. Student materials on evaluating sources of information are incorporated into this unit. Unit III suggests learning activities with which the volunteer may aid students in developing critical thinking skills. Organizing information is dealt with in Unit IV. The use of the paraprofessional as a research assistant is touched upon in Unit V. (SJM)
