Woodbury, Virginia Garton
One in a series of units for gifted students, the booklet focuses on humanities instruction in grade 6. Program background information stresses the values of humanities as a way of studying the connections in the student's life, particularly the connections between subject areas and how they relate to humans' feelings and thoughts. Procedures emphasize facilitation of higher level thinking processes and the use of various activities and open-ended discussions. Program content, resources, activities, and concepts are then listed for four units, with suggestions for language arts, social sciences, and architecture. The units presented are entitled: Greek Civilization, Roman Civilization, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance. Sample discussion questions are included throughout. (CL)
