Crosby, Sandra G.
The program description gives basic information on the one-year social studies course focusing on anthropology, designed primarily for intermediate-grade (4-6) students but applicable to secondary students. While the long range objective is for students to contemplate the nature of man and the forces that shape his humanity, some terminal objectives are to give students confidence in their reasoning abilities, a framework for analyzing the nature of their social world, an understanding of man's capabilities, and concern for the human condition. The teaching-learning strategy emphasizes student-teacher cooperative interaction in the sharing and discussing of ideas. Stressing problems solving using the inquiry approach, techniques employ the tools of behavioral science. Brief information is also provided on the project's typical lessons, view of student evaluation, and out of class preparation; arrangement and school facilities, student and teacher prerequisites and training, the cost of materials, equipment, and services needed for implementation of the project; and also background, rationale and evaluation of the project.
