Using Media to Stimulate Inquiry. Instructor's Guide and Participant's Manual. Teaching Procedures for the New Social Studies.
Carswell, Ronald J. B.; Cason, Robert M.
In this teacher education kit, participants use a wide range of media and materials including slides, serial photos, census data, and video tape to work through exercises from the High School Geography Project. These exercises provide a basis for analysis of the discrepant data teaching procedures in which various media are used to lead students to make certain expectations or generalizations. Students are then presented with additional data which show that these expectations do not always hold true. In attempting to explain the differences, students recognize that they can overlook certain data because of personal biases or stereotypes. The kit is divided into five exercises including (1) An Exercise About Three Neighborhoods in New Orleans, (2) Clarification of the Discrepant Data Teaching Procedure, (3) Analysis of an Exercise About the Cultural Characteristics of Cities, (4) Analysis of the Video Tape, and (5) Classroom Application. Included are an instructor's guide and participant's manual. (Author/DE)
