North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Development.; Winston-Salem City Schools, NC.
These materials were developed for in-service workshops for K-8 teachers as part of the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Metric Education Project. A teacher (or team of two) from each school was trained in a series of six 3-hour sessions using hands-on measurement activities. Teachers in turn were responsible for conducting 10 1-hour in-service sessions in their own schools. The materials are written for the leaders of the school phase of the inservice education project. Each of the 10 chapters contains specific instructions on how to conduct the session. These instructions are divided into the following categories: (1) In Advance; (2) You Need; (3) Suggested Activities; (4) Assignment; and (5) Notes. Following each instruction sheet, the details of the lesson plan are given including background materials for the sessions, written materials needed, transparency suggestions, etc. The 10 chapters are: (1) Background and Status; (2) Temperature, Time and Money; (3) Non-Standard and Arbitrary Units; (4) Linear-Centimeter; (5) Linear-Meter, Etc.; (6) Area-Squares; (7) Volume-Cubes; (8) Capacity-Liquids; (9) Man-Weight-Force; and (10) Vocabulary-Form-Symbols.
