Association of American Geographers, Washington, DC.; High School Geography Project, Boulder, CO.; American Sociological Association, Washington, DC.
The book contains samples of the curriculum materials produced by the High School Geography Project (HSGP) and the Sociological Resources for the Social Studies Project (SRSS) to be used in training preservice and inservice secondary teachers in inquiry methods of instruction. The authors believe that learning occurs through active involvement. The 12 teaching activities selected from HSGP and SRSS are designed so that teachers can actually participate in each. The activities can be conducted as teaching demonstrations. The book is organized into four parts: (1) Introduction, (2) Participant Materials, (3) Instructor's Guide, and (4) Evaluation. The brief introduction explains how to use the book and discusses advantages and disadvantages of national curriculum projects. Part 2 contains the 12 activities that participants will experience. Part 3 presents detailed information on how each activity is to be carried out. Participant objectives, content objectives, information on how to analyze each activity, and suggestions for applying the new learnings are also included. Part 4 explores evaluation procedures appropriate for use with these and other social studies curriculum materials. An index is provided. (Author/RM)
