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 pre-kindergarten 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 "Physical Needs," develops concepts pertaining to the importance of good hygiene, exercise, and nutrition. Unit 2, "Emotional Needs," develops the themes "People need love and respect" and "Love and respect are demonstrated in many ways." The third and final unit, "Environmental Needs," examines the role of living and nonliving things in the environment and their interrelationships. The document includes an introduction, notes to the teacher, and a resource guide. (SG)
