Planning and Instruction and the Social Studies Curriculum: A Discourse on Design and Delivery Systems.
Peters, Richard
A model for Continuous-Integrated-Sequential (C/I/S) curricula for social studies education is presented. The design advocated involves ensuring continuity of instruction from grades K-12, an integration of social studies disciplines, and a sequential process of refining and reinforcing concept and skills from grade-to-grade along the K-12 continuum. The C/I/S design may be arranged in a variety of grade patterns. The role teachers play in this curriculum involves providing a particular type of learning environment among many different types. A variety of methods of delivery of social studies concepts and knowledge are suggested for teachers, including, audiovisuals, excursion, hardware/software, and individualized instruction. It is suggested that lessons and units in the C/I/S curricula can be organized around concepts from many different social studies disciplines, including, anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, psychology, and sociology. Examples of a variety of learning environments are provided in the appendices and a 64-item list of resources is attached. (DB)
