Selected Social Studies Skills: 88 Reinforcement Lessons for Secondary Students.
Stockhaus, Stuart, Ed.
Presented is a series of 88 lessons designed by classroom teachers to help junior high school students reinforce social studies skills. Lessons are categorized into four main skill areas: (1) using reference aids; (2) understanding tables, graphs, and cartoons; (3) developing graphic skills; and (4) evaluating information. For each skill area, information is presented on general objectives, skill categories, vocabulary, and materials. The lessons, presented in the form of worksheets which students are directed to complete, can be used in any sequence, emphasize general social studies concepts, and can be used in a wide variety of courses and grade level settings. Activities involve students in filling in the blanks, analyzing readings, discussing issues in class, answering questions about graphs, charts, and tables, and interpreting tables of contents. By participating in the program, students will reinforce skills such as using library reference aids, using books and magazines, constructing and interpreting tables, graphs, and cartoons, identifying continents and oceans, reading map directions, locating places on maps and globes, calculating mileage, identifying fact, opinion, and bias, identifying primary and secondary sources, and assessing source reliability. The document is presented in loose leaf format to facilitate removal and duplication of material. (DB)
