Nelson, Doreen G.
The program outlined in this manual is an interdisciplinary method of teaching required curriculum (plus additional skills) to elementary students within the framework of a series of activities that relate subject matter to real-life situations. The activities of the program are divided into four slightly overlapping phases or topic areas, each dealing with a different area of development. Each phase is introduced by a statement of purpose and a diagram of developmental sequence. The sequence diagram breaks down each phase into a system of games and simulations and indicates the relationships of all activities in that phase. Following each phase is a list of suggested support activities. The activities progress from simple ones, which can be solved by individual students working alone, to complex ones, which require group organization. Each activity in the program is documented by topic, activity, purpose, objectives, materials, duration, and procedure. (Author/MLF)
