SOCMATICAS Teacher's Guide.
Instructions for use of Socmaticas, a bilingual (Spanish-English), multicultural, multidisciplinary sports learning program are given in this teacher's guide. The program is based on the use of World Soccer team rosters (which include lists of players' names, ages, heights, weights, etc.) to teach English as a second language or Spanish. Students select favorite teams and use team roster data to complete over 300 learning activities in the subject areas of English/Spanish, mathematics, reading, social studies, history, and geography. The activities range from elementary to secondary levels and can be used in group or individual settings to develop cultural awareness and a positive self image. With complete Spanish and English texts, the teacher guide includes: teacher, teacher aide, and student objectives; North American Soccer League team addresses; sample letters that can be used to solicit free soccer team materials; directions for use of the learning activities; student and teacher program evaluation forms; and a skill index.
