Developing Your Potential: Fifth Grade.
Neidrich, Richard A.
The fifth grade instructional unit is part of a field tested grade school level career education series, designed to assist learners in understanding how present experiences relate to past and future ones. Before the main body of the lessons is described, 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. Providing a situation for the learner in which it is socially acceptable to rationally and systematically seek to identify his potentialities, the lessons utilize activities that deal with the first fundamental idea of the unit, recognition of the positive. The second major unit concept is action, helping the learner acquire a repeating consistent procedure in which these recognized positive aspects can be reflected in his daily activities. The 8-hour unit, suitable for group and individual instruction, deals with the affective domain and is not related to any curriculum area. Field test teachers found the unit especially useful for minority/poverty area students. (MW)
