Friedman, Kopple C.
The purpose of this bulletin, one of a series designed to aid the social studies teacher, is to suggest methods for developing accurate concepts of time and chronology. The importance of these concepts and the instructional problems they present is discussed. A chart offers one basis for a program of grading the skills to be emphasized in time and chronology as part of a comprehensive study of skills in the social studies. Examples of paper and pencil exercises are presented for skills involved with words and phrases descriptive to time, arithmetical associations and dates, dates and their centuries, time lines, consistency in time judgment, personal-social time relationships, family tree, comparison of generations, temporal absurdities, comparative duration of historical periods, and historical periods and their characteristics. A bibliography is included. Related documents are SO 005 979 through SO 006 000. (KSM)
