Bilingual-Bicultural Curriculum for Social Studies, Grade 3. Connecticut Migratory Children's Program.
Connecticut Staff Development Cooperative, Hamden.; Hamden-New Haven Cooperative Education Center, CT.; Connecticut State Migratory Children's Program, New Haven.
This is one of a series of curriculum guides designed to assist bilingual teachers to provide a coordinated program of studies for students in the Connecticut Migratory Children's Program and for any other students whose native language is Spanish. It is felt that an effort should be made to discover the skill level at which a child is functioning, to choose materials from curriculum guides at that skill level, and to move to more difficult materials when the child is ready. Skills are suggested at given grade levels to provide a logical sequence of skill development. The overall focus of the curriculum guides in the series is on Puerto Rican history and culture. The present guide is for social studies instruction at the third grade level, and is divided into seven units: (1) Connecticut; (2) Puerto Rico; (3) Latin America; (4) Europe (5) Asia; (6) Eskimos; and (7) American Indian. Each unit is further divided into skills which combine the topic of the unit with basic concepts that the child must master. Activities for each skill are suggested. A vocabulary list is provided in each unit, and the guide is illustrated with black-and-white drawings. (CFM)
