Coltman, Sharon Jane G.
This practicum implemented a 13-week multisensory-based unit of study designed to assist the 25 first grade students in the target population in developing good citizenship. Opportunity for the students to glean an understand that sharing and caring, and interdependence, the major components of good citizenship, are universal necessities was provided. For, as various countries of the world were focused, the similar need for and reality of personally oriented, nationally oriented, and globally oriented interdependence, and sharing and caring were explored. To facilitate a more assured optimum opportunity for the students to develop these understandings, auditory, visual, tactual, and kinesthetic learning activities and devices were very carefully designed and staggered throughout the length of the program. Evaluation at the conclusion of the 13-week program indicated that success had been achieved, with all students attaining 72 percent or higher posttest scores and at least a 13 percent gain over the pre-treatment scores. Appendices include test scores of the target population, evaluation design, teacher survey, student activity samples, and correspondence generated by the project. (Author)
