Linkage Manual V, Social Studies II.
The linkage manual presents social studies material in story outline form. Linkage refers to the bonding of study skills (particularly logical thinking and reading) with subject area content. The document is intended as an aid to intermediate and junior high school classroom teachers as they develop and/or adapt social studies materials to meet the particular needs of their students. Seventeen sample lessons are presented. Topics focus on life in earliest times, earliest civilizations, contributions of ancient China to the world, events leading to the crusades, and reasons for seeking a new route to the East. Activities involve students in locating answers, using charts and diagrams presented in the lessons, writing brief answers to questions based on reading in the lessons, drawing time lines, listing sequences of events, participating in educational games, and matching ideas with clues presented in the lessons. For each lesson, information is presented on a social studies objective; a reading objective; background information involving illustrations, maps, and questions; vocabulary development exercises; context clue exercises; silent reading suggestions; and reading and social studies questions. Supplementary reading suggestions are listed for each topic. (DB)
