The Installation of a Modern Social Studies Program in Grades 4-6 in the West Islip Public Schools.
Pecoraro, Andrew Adrian
An eclectic social studies model for grades 4-6 is described in this practicum. The report of this project, which was developed for the West Islip, New York, public schools and implemented there in 1975, is presented in six chapters: (1) "Analysis of the Problem" identifies weaknesses of the existing social studies program and assesses curriculum needs; (2) "Strategy" delineates the components of a modern program based on the philosophy of social studies education of the West Islip Board of Education; (3) "Selection of Pilot Programs" describes the process of choosing the seven social studies projects which were field-tested in 23 elementary classes; (4) "Installation of Pilot Programs" discusses prerequisite conditions and provision for transitional support and presents a description of pilot-program children and teachers; (5) "Evaluation of Pilot Programs" lists performance objectives developed by the National Council for the Social Studies and adopted by the West Islip Steering Committee; and (6) "Development and Installation of the Model" presents a summary of the model and discusses its implementation. Extensive documentation in the form of tables, appendices, and a bibliography is included in the document. (Author/DB)
