Peters, Richard Oakes
This teaching guide uses thematic units based on several sets of appropriate social studies national standards, specifically, economics, environmental education, geography, and history. The thematic units provide a holistic perspective to students' learning in the classroom/school and at field-based sites in the community/region. Lessons in the guide can be used in an interdisciplinary approach. The guide is divided into the following sections: "ECO/SOCIAL Studies: An Overview"; "Thinking about the Lifespace"; "ECO/SOCIAL Studies Lessons"; "Discovering the Multicultural Character of the Community"; "Multiculture Lessons"; "Culture Awareness Program"; and "Bibliography" (53 items). Includes four relevant articles by the author and a list of related publications. (BT)
