Following and Giving Directions: Fifth Grade.
The fifth grade instructional unit, part of a grade school level career education series, is designed to assist learners in understanding how present experiences relate to past and future ones. Before the main body of the lessons is described field test results are reported and key items are presented: the concepts, the estimated time for delivering the lessons, the vocabulary introduced, the resources required, and the instructor preparation tasks. Instructional procedures are presented in three sections--an introduction, learners' tasks, and a summary. Some supplemental activities are presented, strategy and resource profiles provided, and assessment procedures outlined. The unit's primary intent is to develop beginning competencies in giving and following directions, and the lessons emphasize practice in both giving and following directions. The learner will also be made aware of occupational settings and school tasks which involve directions. The seven and one-half hour unit relates primarily to the language arts area and is suitable for group and individual instruction. An instruction strategy guide is appended, containing several types of instructional strategies: giving directions, role playing, discussion, question and answer, demonstration, and pantomime. (MW)
