This study aims at the development of teaching material to solve the problems of
repetition and omission of learning content which occur in the process of transitional
implementation of 2007’s Revised Elementary Social Studies Curriculum and to provide the
teachers with instructional material which can be a practical support for teaching.
For this, first of all, a survey of the needs of the teachers in the field was performed and as the
result, the directions of the development of the bipartite material were set : material of familarity
and user-friendliness, material of self-fulfillment, and material of flexibility for re-organization. The
first part consists of the purpose of development, the structure and the usage of teaching material
for 2011’s 6th grade teachers, the features of 2007’s Revised Curriculum and 7th Curriculum, the
analysis of repetition(and omission) of curricular content, and the annual plan for 6th grade. The
second part contains the teaching material for teachers to use according to the annual plan.
The developed material for teachers of 2011’s 6th graders will be distributed to 16 major offices of
education, to the branch offices of them and to the schools and is expected to help 6th grade teachers
with the development and implementation of plans of grade and class curriculum and to contribute to smooth settlement of 2007’s Revised Social Studies Curriculum and effective class practice.
