Brophy, Jere; Alleman, Janet
Elementary School Journal, v103 n2 p99-114 Nov 2002
Argues that topical units on cultural universals are well suited for introducing primary grade students to social studies, although the units need to be more powerful than those in leading textbooks. Notes a study supporting the feasibility of cultural universals units in first and second grade classrooms. Suggests guidelines for lesson plans, unit topic focus, topic development, supplementation of traditional text materials, and activities for life application to augment learning. (Author/KB)
