Our Schools in Action: An Integrated Teacher Resource, Grade 7-12.
Alberta Learning, Edmonton.
This resource was developed to involve Alberta, Canada, students, teachers, and communities with the 8th IAAF World Championships in Athletics. It supports implementation of the Alberta Programs of Study and provides activities related to the concepts of the IAAF World Championships in Athletics and school events. Student learning outcomes are designed so that students can gain an understanding of the 2001 IAAF World Championships in Athletics, including the events, the countries, and the people involved. The themes of global friendship, citizenship, well being, and run, jump, throw are integrated with student curricular outcomes. The first section, "It's Coming to Your Community," presents a series of lessons that can be used by students, staff, and community to prepare for a major event coming to their school and community. The section, "7-12 Integrated Lessons," provides many cross-curricular activities that take into consideration the four themes. Many of the lessons can be used in the curriculum in place of, or in conjunction with, activities already being taught in Alberta schools. Teachers can refer to the "Curriculum and Theme Grids" to identify activities suitable for their students. Activities are organized by division, subject, and theme. (SM)
