The booklet outlines skills, objectives, and activities for K-12 classroom teachers to consider as they develop and implement social studies programs. The document is presented in two major parts. Part I identifies major social studies objectives, including to help students develop understandings based on social science data and concepts, reinforce social science work study skills, increase respect for cultural differences, clarify personal values, reflect upon social values, and participate intelligently in society. Within these general categories, teachers are directed to plan activities which will help students recall information, deal with specifics, analyze political and economic influences, and prepare appropriate solutions to suggested problems. Part II presents sample lesson outlines and skill charts organized by grade level. Topics include citizenship rights and responsibilities, obtaining goods and services, community groups, regions of California, the industrial revolution, ancient civilizations, and the United States Constitution. For each unit, information is presented on objectives, general and specific ideas, evaluation strategies, materials needed, and lesson sequence. Activities involve students in class discussion, role playing, devising rules, writing stories, locating information in textbooks, working with maps and globes, writing letters to companies and government agencies, and participating in field trips to community museums, libraries, and organizations.
