SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Social Science Strand, Unit 7, Grade 3, Teacher's Guide--Multi-Ethnic Edition.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Expanding the conceptual field of the child from his neighborhood to the total community, this social science unit for Spanish-speaking third graders presents instructional and assessment activities in kits 25-28. Activities address four spiraling questions pertaining to the elements, wants and needs, change occurrence, and results of change. Focus, objective, and materials needed for each activity in the kits are outlined in English and Spanish; detailed teacher instructions are in Spanish only. Inquiry strategies in both cognitive and affective domains are used along with stories, games, visuals, a field trip, research on biographies, and the child's own experiences. Kits cover occupations; needs; human interaction; man/environment interrelationships; concepts of interdependence, cooperation, values, power, conflict, differences, societal control, tradition, causality, cultural change, and modification; community past, present, and future as reflected in landmarks; construction projects; traditional events; ethnic groups; universal social issues; cultural influence/persistence; adaptation; and natural resources.
