Teaching Social Studies by Teaching Language Arts: Three Papers on Using Language Arts Skills in Social Studies Teaching.
Fenwick, Tara; Parsons, Jim
These three papers deal with ways to incorporate social studies into the language arts curriculum. The first paper, "What Social Studies Teachers Need To Know about Language Arts," provides suggestions on the writing process and how that process can be used in the social studies. Paper 2, "Applying Communications Activities to Learning Processes in Senior High Social Studies," describes the Diagnostic Learning and Communication Processes Program with practical activities and specific instructional suggestions for social studies teachers based on these principles. Paper 3 focuses on "Teaching Social Studies by Teaching Writing." A variety of activity ideas are presented that focus on the five communication processes of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing. Three assignments incorporated into this paper include the learning log, the portfolio, and the project. (EH)
