L'etude metropolitaine. Niveau IV. Base sur le programme scolaire d'etudes sociales de Montgomery County Public Schools (A Metropolitan Study. Grade 4. Based on the Social Studies Curriculum of the Montgomery County Public Schools).
The grade 4 social studies curriculum on metropolitan areas for French immersion is outlined. The syllabus, almost entirely in French, consists of seven units. Each contains an instructional objective (in English); a number of specific performance objectives; and for each performance objective, required and optional vocabulary, required and optional grammatical structures, a list of related activities, and exercises for classroom use. Most of the performance objectives are specific to the District of Columbia area. A letter to parents and visual aids, most pertaining to the District of Columbia area, are included. Unit topics include: the characteristics of a metropolitan area; the kinds of work opportunities to be found in a metropolitan area; the ways in which people in the metropolitan area obtain needed goods and services; population characteristics; the functions of the Montgomery County (Maryland) government; comparison of U.S. metropolitan areas; and the ways in which metropolitan areas change with time. The unit on Montgomery County government includes a draft of a corresponding social studies unit in English. (MSE)
