Realms of the Russian Bear. Nature. Teacher's Guide.
Taragan, Barbara
This curriculum guide was developed for use with public television's Nature series. The materials in the guide are designed to help students actively participate in the study and experience of nature. Students are encouraged to view the programs as naturalists would, observing animals in their environment, noting their behavior, examining factors that affect their health, and drawing conclusions. Each lesson in the Teacher's Resource Guide includes: (1) a "Program Overview" that presents background information and brief synopses of the program to be viewed; (2) "Objectives" that provide the teacher with measurement goals; (3) "Vocabulary" that features definitions of unfamiliar terms; (4) "Before Viewing the Program" that familiarizes students with the subject and allows them to set purposes for viewing; (5) "After Viewing the Program" that provides discussion questions to help students assess the main points of the program; and (6) a "Naturalist's Guide" (student worksheet) to be duplicated and distributed to students. The programs highlighted in this guide focus on the spectacular hidden riches of the diverse lands of Russia and the Central Asian Republics. Program titles include "Green Jewel of the Caspian,""The Arctic Frontier,""The Red Deserts,""The Celestial Mountains,""Siberia-The Frozen Forest," and "Born of Fire." (WRM)
