Origins of Man. Grade Four, Unit One, 4.1. Comprehensive Social Studies Curriculum for the Inner City.
The essential thrust of the fourth grade unit of the FICSS series (Focus on Inner City Social Studies -- see SO 008 271) is to enable students to understand man from an anthropological perspective. The first unit of the fourth grade level deals specifically with the origins of man, the origins of the races of man, the races of man, and races in the United States. Attempting to dispell some of the myths and stereotypes regarding the concept of race and racial superiority, the units begin with the study of man's earliest origins in Olduvai Gorge, tracing the evolution of man to present day. The format of the unit includes a general introduction to the program; suggested teaching procedures and strategies; essential source materials; knowledge, skill, and behavioral objectives; learning activities; and additional teacher and student resources.
