Language Everywhere--Social Studies. [Compiled from Columns in Three Issues of "Live Wire," August and October 1984 and April 1985.]
Live Wire, v1 n1,2 Aug, Oct 1984 v1 n5 Apr 1985
The teaching activities presented in these articles integrate language skills in the social studies curriculum in a variety of ways. The paper describes (1) producing a news program in the classroom; (2) creating "word webs" (using a core word to make associations with other words); (3) making jackdaws (a collection of anything, real or imaginary, that concretely relates to a particular book, time, or theme) in order to increase understanding of an era--its people and places; and (4) writing postcards to become involved with another culture or geographical location.
