GROW: Grade 6. Geographic Review of Our World: A Daily Five-Minute Geography Program for Grades 3-11.
Blaga, Jeffrey J.; And Others
This program provides a way to enhance student understanding of social studies subjects by increasing their basic knowledge of geographic information. It enables teachers to make geography a part of every social studies class and is designed to be used during the first five minutes of each class period. An important aspect of the program is to develop students' ability to locate geographic features. A chalkboard and an atlas are the only items needed to implement the program. Sequential placement of questions in the program ensures exposure to and repetition of geographic skill areas. After a concept has been introduced at a certain grade level, each succeeding level will include a pre-determined number of questions to reinforce the concept. Placement of the question within the sequence was based on recommendations made in publications of the National Council for the Social Studies. Major social studies series were reviewed for question appropriateness. Over 50 geographic concepts are developed throughout the program. The book is divided into 36 weekly lessons, utilizing two questions per day for four days a week. The format for each day includes the concept introduced, the questions, and the answers. The book concludes with a glossary of geographic terms. (SM)
