Teach Them All.
Pike County Board of Education, Troy, AL.
Six social studies units for teachers of elementary and secondary students are presented. The document, written by various authors, is one component of the Pike County, Alabama, ethnic studies inservice training project. Objectives of the units are to help students develop an awareness and understanding of differing cultures and customs. Topics covered are the community as a melting pot, the civil rights movement of the 1960s and related Kennedy and Johnson legislation, multi-ethnic community helpers in Pike County (grades K-2), ancient Greece and its effects on world culture, development of a positive self-image (grades 3-4), and individual and group interaction and conflict resolution. Each unit outlines educational objectives and goals, major and minor concepts, and evaluation suggestions. A major part of each unit presents suggestions for student activities. Students are involved in researching, presenting and writing reports, interviewing, listening to speakers, viewing films and filmstrips, storywriting, discussing, role playing, debating, and participating in skits, games, and field trips. Vocabulary lists are included in some units. A bibliography of books, filmstrips, films, study prints, and other material concludes each unit. (CK)
