PRIDE in the Social Studies: Report of a Program Funded through ESAA, The Emergency Secondary Aid Act (P.L. 92-318).
Anne Arundel County Board of Education, Annapolis, MD.
The social studies component of a secondary level interdisciplinary project, Personalized Reading Interdisciplinary Development for Everyone (PRIDE), is described. Intended for use as an individualized approach for the slow learner, PRIDE encourages students with reading difficulties to tutor two mornings a week in elementary classrooms and attend smaller high school classes the other three days. Field trips, grading procedures, career education, parent involvement, and inservice teacher training are discussed. Topics in the social studies program focus on teaching the poor reader social studies, map skills, and human relations. Three advantages of Project PRIDE are noted. First, team teaching allows for greater communication with the students. Second, the program's flexible schedule allows all PRIDE students to be assembled for a field trip, movie, or other activity. Third, resource help and volunteer tutors provide a better teacher-student ratio. The bulk of the report consists of forms and sample letters used in the PRIDE program, outlines of teacher workshops, suggested units and themes, audiovisual materials, and copies of program pretests. A bibliography of books, periodicals, articles in anthologies, and dissertations is included. (Author/DB)
