Kern County Superintendent of Schools, Bakersfield, CA.
This handbook outlines the kindergarten course entitled "Myself and Others in My World." A statement of the California philosophy of history-social science education precedes the handbook's three sections. The first two sections present major goals of the program, an overview of social studies content for grades K-6, and a chart of areas of study for grades K-12. Section 3 describes the topics, concepts, skills, learning activities, and media resources for the kindergarten course. Topics covered include self-concept, personal needs, self-awareness, the five senses, map skills, rules, listening skills, cooperation, conflict, jobs, songs and dances, and special occasions. Appendices contain California education codes concerning history and social science instruction and the observance of special events. (LP)
