This is a procedure for learning about the history, geography and science that underlies successful performance in Social Studies and Science, or that takes the place of these subjects in specially designed programs for youth and young adults. We created this program because we find that many of our students have a very limited understanding of what is going on in the larger world around them. They need to learn to see the big picture and develop an appreciation for the whole story about the world in which they live.
The Worldview program becomes the underlying architecture for general knowledge. Special versions are created for young children and gifted children, as well as children with learning disabilities, who have missed the basic social studies and science curriculum from /Grade 3 to their current grade.
The Worldview program is also then specifically connected to their classroom social studies and science programs so that students learn to make these connections themselves as the grades progress.
Finally, when appropriate, using the Usborne system the Worldview is connected to 800 safe Internet sites for research purposes or to deepen knowledge of a particular topic, thus putting a personal resource library and lessons of how to use it in the hands of each learner. This process enriches the education of each learner in an efficient and exciting manner.
