This Pilipino teacher's guide written in Chinese and English is part of Berkeley, California Unified School District Asian American Bilingual Center's interest in fostering 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 correspond with the concepts of identity, needs and interaction. Level Two is designed for children in grades three and four. 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-Worth," examines the basic values of people, their basic rights, and their ability to develop their abilities and explore their interests. Unit 2, "Family," explains that families interact with each other in many ways, including work. Unit 3, "Ethnic Group," develops the theme that members of ethnic groups are people with a common history in their native country and the United States and share a cultural background. The unit also examines the notion that ethnic grounds share certain characteristics. The document includes an introduction and notes to the teacher. (SG)
