BO-CEC Social Studies Resource Guide; Grades 7-9.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins. Dept. of Vocational Education.
The purpose of the six units in the seventh-ninth grade curriculum guide is to supplement, enrich, and reinforce the usual classroom instruction in social studies while introducing information about careers. The activities are intended as enrichment to reinforce a regular social studies unit. The units are vehicles for the infusion of occupational information into the general academic studies of geography, American history, and American government. They emphasize the practical applications of skills in these areas by providing students with information about business and office occupations in a variety of industry settings. One 14-section unit is designated geography; two units, history; and two units, government; each of them, however, develops multiple skills and concepts and could, therefore, be used in any social studies class. The first one or two pages of each unit give the purpose, briefly describe the major activities, and suggest teaching procedures. A general information sheet provides teachers with background information on the occupation described in the unit. Teacher's keys provide answers to unit activities, except where students are asked to express their opinions. Student materials for major activities are provided. (Author/AJ)
