People & Places U.S.A. - Teacher's Guide.
Community School District 11, Bronx, NY.
Designed for grades 3-5, "People and Places, U.S.A." represents one part of an instructional program called "Probing Our Wonderful Environmental Resources" (P.O.W.E.R.). These supplementary reading materials were developed by a special project, the Production of Women's Educational Resources, to provide affective learning experiences which help develop a positive self image and to promote career goals based upon personal interests and abilities, not on sex or ethnicity. This document is intended as a teacher's guide to a student text comprised of 30 short narratives. The introduction describes the program and how to use the guide. Section I outlines the project's objectives and development, summarizes the student text, lists the role model attributes of the characters in the narratives along with career role models, and suggests a variety of non-sexist media activities to accompany the readings. Section II identifies language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies activities appropriate for different narratives within the different grade levels as well as other optional follow-up activities. Section III discusses the use of media and suggests ways in which it can be used with different narratives to teach different subject skills. (DC)
