Special Times in Families.
The three-week unit dealing with important moments in life when values are learned is designed to be incorporated into an eighth grade English language arts class. It is part of a series of guides developed by teachers at an institute conducted by the Public Education Religion Studies Center at Wright State University. A major objective of the unit is to have students read, examine, and evaluate literature which shows how specific aspects of life can be dealt with. Through the various stories and poems which are suggested for the students to read, the students will think about the life-style and world view of themselves and of their own family as they compare their attitudes with those portrayed in the stories. The unit is arranged into six parts. Part one provides a brief introduction. Part two, Content, outlines generalizations, subject matter, and vocabulary. Part III lists six cognitive and five affective goals and objectives. Part IV, the major part of the document, briefly describes 25 initiatory, developmental, and culminating activities. Activities engage the students in writing, discussing, and participating in projects such as tracing their family trees. Part V provides nine evaluation suggestions. The document concludes with lists of instructional resources for the teacher and student. (Author/BC)
