Integrating concepts of basic citizenship education with community involvement, this experiential curriculum, written in Spanish, provides a means for developing decision making and critical thinking skills within the existing social studies curriculum in grade 1. Using short stories, field trips, and class discussions, the 11 lessons on responsibilities, rules, sharing, and litter prevention are titled Quiero Un Perrito, Nuestras Responsabilidades, La Cadena, Un Cuento de Brujas, Compartiendo, El Cono de Nieve, Reglas Escolares, El Cuidado de los Libros, Una Visita a la Biblioteca, La Basura, and Equipo de los Estudiantes Contra la Basura. Purposes of the lessons are to (1) suggest ways to demonstrate responsibilities, reasons for rules, and rules made by families; (2) identify various responsibilities and rules, individuals' responsibilities to obey rules, litter as a problem of society, and actions students can take to help stop litter at school; (3) examine individual responsiblities for sharing and various actions that must be taken in order to obey a rule; (4) resolve a dilemma involving sharing; and (5) review rules for proper book care. Each lesson includes a purpose statement, concepts to be learned, time and materials needed, student objectives, suggested activities, and black and white illustrations and patterns for transparencies.
