This teacher's guide, part of a sequential K-12 series, provides objectives and learning activities for social studies students in grade 10. Five major sections focus on learning, inquiry, and discussion skills, concepts, and values and moral reasoning. Learning skills stress listening, speaking, viewing, reading, writing, map, and statistical abilities. Students plan debates, show relationships between word pairs, interpret cartoons, write essays, and interpret population graphs. A section on how to write essays for social studies is included. Inquiry skills involve noting similarities and differences, classifying, drawing inferences, generalizing, hypothesizing, distinguishing between fact and opinion, identifying needed evidence, recognizing biased statements, asking useful questions, distinguishing between primary and secondary sources, and evaluating sources of information. Several reproducible readings and activities focus on these skills. Concepts covered are conflict, interdependence, communication, cause and effect, environment, and political revolution. Students examine political systems, analyze environment as both physical and cultural, and investigate attributes, causes, and states of revolution. Students practice discussion skills in groups by solving mysteries and puzzles. The section on values and moral reasoning provides strategies for discussing moral dilemmas, steps in problem solving, and exercises in moral dilemmas and values clarification. (KC)
