Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.; Chelmsford Public Schools, MA.
Concerned specifically with the "Hausa" family, this third resource unit designed for grade two is one of a series on the theme of Families Around the World. In a cross cultural approach students examine the concepts of culture, cultural diversity, social organization, social process, and geography. Teaching techniques focus on activity learning, inquiry training, and concept teaching. The first part of the unit furnishes background information on the Hausa family describing the household, clothing, a typical day, socialization, and communication. A major portion of the document describes teaching strategies for eighty two activities in a format designed to help teachers see the relationships among objectives, content, teaching procedures, and materials of instruction. Audiovisual aids and printed materials to be used are listed with each activity and a general list of educational media is given. Appendices include many pupil materials for this unit such as maps, readings, graphs, songs, and study questions. Related documents are ED 051 032, ED 051 033, ED 055 393, SO 005 394, and SO 005 396.
