SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Social Science Strand, Unit 1, Grade One, Teacher's Guide--Multi-Ethnic Edition.
Suarez, Carmen G.; And Others
Helping first graders adjust to the classroom environment is the theme of the bilingual social science instructional unit. The Spanish-English guide presents instructional and assessment activities for four kits: (1) who the child is--concepts of interdependence, cooperation, values, societal control; activities for building self-confidence and clarifying self-image; (2) the child's needs and wants--concepts of tradition, causality; activities to help the child become aware of how use of available emotional, physical, and environmental resources may help him satisfy his wants and needs in the classroom; (3) the child's resources--concepts of power, conflict, tradition; activities where the child analyzes all aspects of given situations and offers possible solutions; introduction of map skills; (4) the child's use of resources--concepts of modification, cultural change; identification activities making the child aware of the physical and social environment and their interaction. Inquiry strategies in both cognitive and affective domains are utilized to reach the objectives. Content sources are the child's own experience, games, stories, interviews, visits to other classrooms, and dramatizations. Assessment activities measure knowledge of material and reinforce previous instruction. (RS)
