Antoniuk, Howard; And Others
Designed to be used in conjunction with the Alberta (Canada) Social Studies Program of Studies, this color coded resource manual provides practical suggestions for teachers. It is organized in five sections. The first section presents the goals and objectives of the program, sample models for problem solving and decision making, and an outline of course content for grades four through six. The second section offers suggestions for planning instruction and includes sample skill development charts and lesson planning sheets. Section three covers strategies and activities, including group work, writing reports, brainstorming, learning centers, role playing, cooperative learning, interviews, field studies, and parent/community involvement. The fourth section deals with evaluation and includes sample checklists, quizzes, and other forms for use in evaluating student comprehension. Section five, the bulk of the document, consists of sample units for each of three topics in grades four through six. An appendix provides a list of regional and urban film centers. (JB)
