Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop a unit of study to provide additional resources for the social studies program for Grade five. The material was developed using an instructional development approach. -- The program includes a slide/tape presentation, and a teacher's guide. Included in the teacher's guide are activities to provide content re-inforcement, as well as an evaluation tool. The intended learning outcomes were determined by the Social Studies Curriculum Guide for the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. -- An extensive literature search identified a lack of audio-visual material to help teachers in the part of The Atlantic Edge, (1983) about St. Pierre and Miquelon. The writer consulted with teachers, and social studies co-ordinators and their suggestions were included in the unit. -- The material was field tested in four Grade five classes on the Burin Peninsula. Evaluation results show that the material was suitable for those for whom it was designed, and successful in meeting the specified objectives. -- Two conclusions were drawn from the study. -- (1) This instructional material improved the level of knowledge of those Grade five students who experienced the unit of study. -- (2) The material improved the performance level of students in schools physically close to St. Pierre and Miquelon. It is suspected that students in schools further removed from the Burin Peninsula would show a more pronounced result.
