Bilingual Bicultural Curriculum for Social Studies: Grade Five.
Loiselle, Maryann; And Others
Designed to assist bilingual teachers in providing a coordinated program of studies for students in the Connecticut Migratory Children's Program and for other students whose native language is Spanish, this social studies curriculum guide for fifth grade is one of a series for pre-school through fifth grade. The overall focus is on Puerto Rican history and culture, placing the development of skills within the context of the experience and social identity of the child. A sequential approach is utilized. The guide contains eight units, related to those in the other fifth grade guides: environmental adaptation, migration, cultural contacts, production, trade, stability and change, ideals, building a style of life. Appropriate skills are presented in each unit; for example, the skills in the unit on trade are: explaining the importance of trade between countries, comparing old and new methods of trade, understanding the concepts of exportation and importation, and citing examples of trade between the United States and other countries. Key vocabulary words are listed with each skill. Activities to motivate students to learn each new skill are described. The illustrations provided can be copied for instructional use. Much of the material for the teacher to use in class is given in Spanish. (CM)
