Los Angeles Unified School District, CA. Office of Instruction.
This teacher's resource guide is designed to facilitate the planning of science and history/social science classroom instruction concerning nuclear age issues for elementary and secondary students. The materials introduce this topic with an interdisciplinary approach to a broad range of nuclear topics. The booklet is divided into five sections. The first section discusses the psychological impact that nuclear age issues have on children and suggests classroom techniques and strategies teachers can use to approach the topic that take into account the students' grade level. The second through fifth sections present instructional units that integrate nuclear age issues into: elementary science; elementary history/social science; secondary science; and secondary history/social science. Each subsection identifies the behavioral objectives for the instructional units and provides teacher directed lesson plans to meet those objectives. Appendices provide the following information: (1) a nuclear glossary of key terms useful in studying nuclear issues; (2) annotated lists of 158 print and media resources, 36 curriculum materials for teachers, 24 organizations and public agencies involved in nuclear issues, and 16 audiovisual materials available through the Los Angeles Unified School District; and (3) Skills Continuums for elementary science, elementary social studies, secondary science, and secondary social studies.
