Providing for Individual Differences and Designing the Curriculum.
Ediger, Marlow
Elementary school students differ in interest, capacity, achievement, social development, socioeconomic level, and psychomotor skills. These individual differences are discussed in reference to the process of designing the elementary social studies curriculum. Part One suggests ways in which teachers can respond to students' individual differences. Part Two lists eight criteria to be followed in the designing of activities; argues for the use of group and committee work to improve students' social development; suggests individual activities; and discusses the integrated social studies curriculum. Also discussed in this part are the process of developing the total child, readiness for learning, teacher-pupil planning, and the quality of the learning environment. (RH)
