The Unit Approach for Kindergarten: Primary Grades.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Bureau of General and Academic Education.
The unit approach to instruction in the kindergarten and primary grades is considered as an example of learning by doing. In guiding a unit, the teacher must have thorough basic plans but must be willing to let the students substitute their ideas for hers. Part of the purpose of unit work is to let children discover for themselves what process is best. A list of things that must be done before and during the progress of a unit is presented. A survey is provided of the study of a unit, and 46 topics for kindergarten-primary units are suggested. Activities for unit work using a variety of materials are also suggested. A 13-question evaluation scale for unit work is provided. (KM)
