Our Community -- Today and Yesterday. Book One. Teacher's Guide (Nihil Hahoodzodoo -- Diijiidi doo Adaadaa. Naaltsoos T'aala'i Gone Yits'iligii). Fourth Grade Navajo Bilingual-Bicultural Social Studies Curriculum.
Wallace, Stephen; And Others
Intended to accompany book 1 of the Rough Rock (Arizona) fourth grade Navajo social studies program, this guide is intended to help the teacher assist students through a series of learning experiences designed to develop important inquiry and social studies skills and to increase students' abilities to make generalizations about their community and the world at large. The guide combines the elements of highly structured, "cookbook" activities with "guided" activities in which only the suggestion for an activity is provided. Each lesson is built around the ideas presented in a chapter of the student textbook and reinforces the chapter's concepts and generalizations. Each lesson includes the following information: purpose, concepts, main idea, skills to be developed, objectives to be achieved, materials needed, suggested time, and teaching strategies and activities. The guide has a "built-in" evaluation system which determines the students' mastery of concepts and skills by their ability to successfully complete the instructional objectives listed for each lesson. The guide includes a section on the acquisition of and the organization and communication of facts and information, the development and presentation of thought-provoking questions, the development of tentative answers, the testing of questions, the remaining steps of inquiry, and social skills.
