Religion in Elementary Social Studies: Level Two. Teacher's Guide [And Student Materials and] Evaluation Report.
Dye, Joan G.; Allen, Rodney F.
From the Religion in Elementary Social Studies Project (RESS), this second-grade unit is the second of six classroom material packages containing teacher's guides and student learning activities. Designed to infuse religion study into the elementary social studies curriculum the content of the RESS modules is multidisciplinary. The basic strategy employed is the inquiry method. The second-grade unit consists of three modules which focus on areas of inquiry about religious meaning and commitment in a particular cultural setting. Religion is explored as a community experience in a homogeneous society, a society of cultural diversity, and in the child's own community. Each module in the teacher's guide contains the following information: conceptual framework; learning strategies; role of the teacher; learning activities; materials needed; preparation; evaluation; and resources and references. The document also includes student materials and an evaluation report of the second-grade unit. (Author/JR)
