SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Social Science Strand, Unit 5, Grade 2, Teacher's Guide--Multi-Ethnic Edition.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Unit five of the social science strand for second graders expands the conceptual field of the child from the school to the community. This teacher's guide provides instructional and assessment activities for kits 17-20. Focus, materials and objective for each activity are given in Spanish and English, with teacher instructions in Spanish only. Stories, games, interviews, and the child's own experience provide the content sources. Activities include discussions, dramatizations, a field trip, and a discussion by a guest speaker. Using the school environment as a setting, the children are able to identify power structures and vested interest groups, predict disagreements that might occur from conflicting attitudes, and explore ways to deal with disagreements. A story depicting a conflict caused by ethnic-cultural differences is used as a springboard for discussion of the problem and of the feelings of various people involved. The class relates this to similar conflicts in the classroom and defines possible solutions. Students examine their school traditions and history and identify similarities and differences among different types of schools. Basic concepts explored include interdependence, cooperation, values, societal control, traditions, causality, power, conflict, and cultural change and modification. (DS)
