DRAWS: Development of Reading and Writing in Social Studies. Teacher's Guide.
Garrahy, Dennis J.
The teacher's guide outlines seven individual social studies units designed to help low achieving students develop reading and writing skills. Following a preface on reading and writing in the content area, material is divided into seven sections which cover the program units on religion, "isms," education, energy, technology, revolution, and consumerism. These themes use current events as a motivator to teach reading, writing, and social studies. The seven units are sequential in order of difficulty, beginning at the fourth grade level of readability. Project procedures and materials can be used for high school classes, individual study in alternative and continuing high schools, and adult education classes. Following a uniform format, sections include teacher instructions, a study guide, quizzes, a unit test, and answer keys for 11 exercises. (LP)
