Nova Scotia Dept. of Education, Halifax.
This guide is intended to help social studies educators in Nova Scotia develop a junior-senior high school program for students who have had a history of learning difficulties and whose acquisition of skills has been slower than average. The first part of the guide contains a definition of the student for whom the program is intended, guidelines for identifying program candidates, program objectives, basic approach and strategies, administrative considerations, and teacher considerations. The second and major portion of the guide outlines the content of the adjusted program. There are five basic units, dealing with physical geography, community study, Atlantic Canada, living in Canada, and living in North America, and seven supplementary units, dealing with world cultures, Canada in the 20th century, current events, consumer education, citizenship and government, mass media, and outstanding people who have contributed to Canadian life. Information provided for each unit includes educational objectives, a brief description of content, teaching ideas/student activities, and a listing of resources. (RM)
