Social Studies: A Resource Guide for Hearing-Impaired High School Students.
Jaggers, Robert A.; Jaggers, Barbara A.
The guide was written to give secondary level hearing impaired students exposure to real life problems from a social studies perspective. Units are outlined for the three levels of the high school years and provide an overview, information on vocabulary, target competencies, suggested activities, sources, and a list of objectives. The units are arranged in a sequence, with topics building on one another. Math concepts are integrated into the social studies instruction. Four units in the first level address the following major topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): consumer education (unit pricing, brand name products); banking (checking, savings accounts); credit and credit cards (credit card application, billing procedures); and American history. The second level focuses on budgeting (priorities, determination of a reasonable budget); insurance (kinds, purchase); income tax and income tax forms (deductions, tax preparation); renting (use of classified ads, rental considerations); and selecting and buying a house or car (dealing with a realtor, installment buying). The third level touches on careers (choosing and locating a job, job interviews); the constitution and the Bill of Rights (purposes of each); the law (legal rights, court and police procedures); and responsibilities of citizenship (understanding politics, obligations, government services).
