This instructional unit entitled The Newfoundland Sailing Fleet was developed to introduce young Newfoundland students to the maritime skill and expertise of their ancestors. It is intended to supplement the existing Grade Five Social Studies program. -- The unit consists of: -- 1. A student booklet containing reading material, illustrations and activities about the Newfoundland sailing fleet. -- 2. A teacher's handbook containing copies of the instructional objectives, task and concept analyses, and the test for the unit. Additional resources and a list of resource material are also included. -- The unit was developed using a four stage model designed by Thiagarajan, Semmel and Semmel (1974). -- Developmental testing was carried out during the design and developmental stages of production. The validation testing was conducted in classes organized under the jurisdiction of the Avalon Consolidated School Board within the town of Mount Pearl, Newfoundland. Results from developmental and validation testing indicate that the unit can be used effectively as resource material in the Grade Five Social Studies program.
