Intergroup Relations Curriculum. Program Report.
The description provides information on the elementary social studies one-year program designed for use as the basis of curriculum or as a supplement to an existing program. A long term goal is for students to develop democratic human relations. Terminal objectives include affective and cognitive developments, helping students to understand the governing process, develop positive self concepts, reduce stereotypic thinking, acknowledge differences among people, and participate in the learning process. Although the political science concept of the "governing process" forms the lesson core, an interdisciplinary approach is pursued involving concepts of psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, science, and language arts. Teaching strategies emphasize inductive methods that involve students in the learning process through the discussion method. Students, actively involved in learning activities which stress racial and social problems, take part in roleplaying activities, games and simulations, films, and student reports. Brief information is also included on organization of content, description of program materials, a typical lesson, student testing and evaluation, implementation and costs of the projects, and program development and evaluation.
