Using microcomputers in the social studies classroom by Robert B Abelson( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to help teachers feel at ease with microcomputers so that they will begin to think of computers as tools that they themselves might use. There are four chapters. The first chapter provides basic information to help a user understand the computer. Discussed are how the computer is put together and how it works. To help teachers generate ideas about how this new educational aid might be useful in terms of their own teaching objectives, the second chapter describes why and how other educators are using the computer. Chapter 3 is an introduction to software evaluation, I.E., how computer programs that are available for use in the classroom can be judged. Criteria are presented. It is suggested that teachers using computer-assisted instruction should have a feel for some of the broader issues related to computers in education, as well as practical knowledge. The purpose of the fourth chapter, which deals with social and educational issues and directions, is to provide a perspective about these broader issues and a context into which teachers might place their own activities. Most of the book's readings provide a bibliography of references and further resources. In addition, a list of resources available through the eric system is provided. (Rm)
Teaching psychology in secondary schools by Richard A Kasschau( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The document examines the teaching of psychology at levels below college. Its purpose is to establish a separate identity for high school psychology teachers by tracing the growth and documenting the breadth of present-day psychology at the secondary school level. The focus is on distinguishing between the needs of the college professor and the high school psychology teacher. Discussion is limited primarily to high school psychology courses, where most curriculum development efforts and enrollment increases have occurred. A few efforts at the elementary and junior high school levels are also mentioned. A brief history of the field and documentation of the rapid growth in recent years are reviewed. Next, some of the philosophical issues behind the teaching of psychology below college are considered. The main issue of contention is whether personal development or substantive knowledge of psychology as a discipline should be the primary goal. The last two sections are devoted to the primary areas in which the philosophical issues have had an impact: instructional approaches and teacher training. (Author/KSM)

Social studies in the mainstreamed classroom, K-6 by Anna S Ochoa-Becker( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A guide is designed for elementary school teachers with handicapped students in their classrooms. Seven sections comprise the document. Section I discusses the implications of mainstreaming for classroom teachers. Discussed are 1) the physical and social isolation of the handicapped students in the 1960s; 2) the impact of Public Law 94-142 which underscores the rights of these children to public education in a setting which includes children who are not handicapped; 3) practical and ethical considerations; and 4) identification of the handicapped. Section ii lists social studies goals for the handicapped learner relative to knowledge, skills, values, and social participation. Section iii discusses social studies instruction for handicapped students with learning disabilities, hearing impairments, emotional handicaps, visual impairment, speech and language disorders, and physical disabilities, and for those who are mentally retarded. Section iv provides methods of assessing achievement in relation to the goals stated in Section ii. Section v discusses providing for individual differences by listing sources of help for teachers (peer tutors, cross-age tutors, and volunteers) and strategies such as grouping. Section vi suggests teaching "regular students" about handicapping conditions through learning experiences, children's books, films and videotapes, and simulations. A brief list of resources is provided. The final section presents evaluations of social studies textbooks and federally funded curriculum projects for the handicapped. Related resources available from eric and Exceptional Child Education Resources (ecer) are listed. (Kc)
