SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Social Science, Unit 6, Grade 2, Teacher's Guide.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
The social science strand of unit six for second graders expands the conceptual field of the child from the school as a community to the neighborhood as a community. Both instructional and assessment activities are featured in the four kits of this teacher's guide. Focus, objectives, and materials for each activity are given in English and Spanish, with teacher instructions only in Spanish. Instructional activities in Kit 21 deal with the basic concepts of interdependence, cooperation, values and societal control as the children identify occupations, the elements of a neighborhood, kinds of neighborhoods, and ways families contribute to the welfare of other community members. Kit 22 deals with tradition and causality as children identify old but useful things in the neighborhood, report on changes, and explore the cause-effect relationship. Kit 23 works with the concepts of conflict and differences as it makes the child aware that neighborhoods are composed of people who think differently and have different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The child identifies ways groups settle differences and learns how minorities can influence the democratic process. Kit 24 seeks to make the child aware that he can initiate change as it studies the basic concepts of cultural change and modification. (DS)
