City Government. Grade Three, Unit One, 3.1. Comprehensive Social Studies Curriculum for the Inner City.
Pedrotty, Sister Janet
The first section of the third grade unit of the Focus on Inner City Social Studies (FICSS) series (see SO 008 271) focuses attention on power in the city government. The unit is placed at the beginning of the year so that by November the students can more fully understand and draw upon the issues relevant to their local government. The content outline for study was written with Cleveland as a case study, giving teachers an idea of the kind of information that the class could look for in learning about its own local government. The timing of the various segments of the unit will vary depending upon the experiences, resources, interest, and maturity of the pupils. The outline calls for a class election every Friday and an assembly meeting every Monday, giving students the experiential knowledge they need in order to grasp the concept of participant power in any type of government. The format of the unit includes a unit introduction; essential source materials to teach the unit; knowledge, skill, and behavioral objectives; learning activities; and supplementary teacher and student resources.
