Red Rock on the Move. Teacher's Guide [and] Student Material.
Cramer, Terra Sue
The major objective of this elementary school consumer education unit is to help students learn how to write different kinds of sentences. Another objective is to help students understand contemporary communities, by introducing a hypothetical community called Red Rock. Topics about which students are directed to write sentences include transportation, community development, and communication skills. These topics lend themselves to integration within existing social studies as well as language arts, and/or English instruction curricula. Materials presented include teaching guidelines, objectives, directions for student activities, worksheets, tests, answer keys, and vocabulary lists. Students are involved in a variety of activities including analyzing sentences, changing sentences from statements to questions and vice versa, writing sentences of various types based on selected reading about transportation and community development, describing illustrations, providing brief answers to questions based on selected reading, diagramming sentences, and creating workbooks composed of sentences of various types about transportation. For each activity, information is presented on objectives, materials needed, questions and/or worksheets (where appropriate), vocabulary lists, and background information. Answers to all worksheets and quizzes are included in the teacher's guide. (DB)
