This Pilipino teacher's guide is part of Berkeley, California Unified School District Asian American Bilingual Center's effort to foster the total growth of the child. To facilitate that growth, the Center has selected an interdisciplinary approach to curriculum development. Social studies themes and concepts provide the framework within which all the subject areas, including mathematics, reading and language arts, fine arts, and science, are organized. The four social studies themes are child, family, community, and natural environment. The themes reappear and expand through the curriculum from one text to the next and correlate to the concepts of identity, needs, and interaction. The Introductory Level is designed for prekindergarten and kindergarten children. Each level develops one or more aspects of a theme as the child moves from simple to complex ideas and from understanding of self to understanding of society. Unit 1 of the document, entitled "Self-Discovery," develops concepts concerning how people identify themselves with different kinds of information, how people are similar or different, how people change and grow, and the fact that people are complex living things. Unit 2, "Family and Ethnic Group," examines the conceptual premise "people belong to different groups." The document includes an introduction, notes to the teacher, and a resource guide. (SG)
