Baker, Susan; And Others
These materials consist of a series of lessons comprising an interdisciplinary, multicultural instructional unit. They were designed for use in an elementary school Spanish partial immersion program, to address a variety of needs and learning styles of children from diverse backgrounds, and are intended to foster a sense of community and responsibility, both local and global. The unit is organized according to the model of multiple intelligences: verbal/linguistic; logical/mathematical; visual/kinesthetic/ musical/rhythmical, interpersonal, and intrapersonal. Lesson topics include: the connection between individuals and the human and natural worlds; the individual self; family; home; school; the local community; communities in general; seasons; the earth; and endangered animals. Included are excerpts from other publications and a number of reproducible student worksheets. A brief list of related materials is also appended. All instructions are in English, and some worksheets are all or partially in Spanish. (MSE)
