Children of the World. A Series of Nine Television Programs for Elementary Students.
Larson, Jo Ann
This is a guide to nine, thirty-minute video tape programs that try to develop in elementary school children an awareness of a true family of man. Brazil, Guatemala, Dahomey, Somalia, Nepal, Thailand, Chile, Peru, and Jamaica are the countries in which a child's life, showing the similarities and differences that exist for all humans, is the vehicle for a case study approach to social studies curriculum. The guide presents instructional objectives, previewing, viewing, and postviewing teaching strategies, and supplementary materials for the whole series and for individual tapes. In part one, general concepts of family, education, commerce, childhood, religion, geography, and economics provide a framework for viewing all the tapes and examining each culture. Part two of the guide gives specific insight into each country so that national differences are not lost among similarities. This series is available for duplication onto slant tract video tape and in color or black and white. The New York State Education Department, Bureau of Mass Communication may be contacted for more information. ED 081 688 is a related document. (JH)
