The two major parts of a publication resulting from the 14th annual Arizona Migrant Child Teacher and Aide Institute discuss learning centers and resource units and provide four K-3 resource units, and three resource units for grades 4-8. Institute participants from 1983 and earlier years are listed. The discussion of learning centers as designated classroom areas where children may do specific activities related to some new concept or skill reinforcement covers development and evaluation of learning centers and suggests activities for learning centers in language, math, science/health, art, music, and audio-media. Instructional resource units are defined and the organization of the resource units that follow is described. Each unit contains goals, objectives, motivation activities, topics for committee/group work, evaluation measures, and concluding activities. Primary level units include using space as a theme for teaching basic skills (K-1), learning about careers (K-3), playing games from around the world (K-3), and a desert unit for special education students. Intermediate level units discuss the solar system, and understanding classified ads and "crunchy-coated" commercials. Units include numerous drawings and patterns, spelling and vocabulary development activities, math and art activities, games and puzzles, and bibliographies of books, audiovisual materials, and sources of supplementary information.
