Life Outside School: A Curriculum Proposal.
This paper proposes a curriculum that is designed to help upper elementary students (grades four through six) become well-rounded, well-adjusted individuals capable of transferring their academic and social skills to a variety of home, workplace, and community settings. It contains three units that focus on the home, workplace, and community, with each unit designed to be taught during two weekly sessions over the course of the school year. The curriculum outlines specific goals and objectives for each unit, teaching methods, lessons, and suggested activities. It provides a detailed plan for Unit 2, Life in the Workplace, which centers on parent speakers describing the jobs they do and the preparation they received for such employment. The unit also contains sample lesson plans, activities, and student evaluations. (Contains 16 references.) (MDM)
