Materials and Activities for Teachers and Children (MATCH). Program Report.
Self contained multi-media kits for grades 1 through 6 involve students directly in the learning process. Emphasis is on non-verbal learning which takes place when youngsters examine real objects and engage in learning activities. Involved in the discovery and inquiry process, students hypothesize, classify, and categorize. In an interdisciplinary approach to the social studies, the MATCH boxes aim for both affective and cognitive learning. Cognitive objectives involve learning facts, information about ancient Greek life, contemporary Japanese life, and the city. Affective objectives help students to deal reflectively with themselves and toward the world around them. Each of the three kits are designed for two to three weeks of study. The program description is divided into five sections and includes information on goals and objectives, content and materials, classroom action, implementation and costs, and program development and evaluation.
