Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, October 16, 1970 Hows And Whys More Important Than Dates Social Science Learned In Grade 4 By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer "Are you a social scientist?" asked one of the Westminster School Grade 4 students who is currently studying social science. Although the person in question was not a scientist of any kind, the student was using a ami ivincy LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By MARLENE COOKSHAW WINSTON CHURCHILL HIGH SCHOOL TF you walked up to a student in Churchill any day about this time of the year and asked "How's life?," you'd get a variety of responses - anything from a blank expression to a wave and a mumbled reply - but they all mean the same thing: "BUSY - very busy!" Life at Churchill is anything but boring, what with dodging committee representatives and ticket sellers for various activities. Students are almost in the middle of the semester and they're definitely right in the middle of everything else. . Clubs are all over and there's one for every student. Badminton's great for keeping in shape; the trampoline and tumbling clubs are fun too. If you like competition, join the boys' and girls' intramural leagues and enjoy both the volleyball and basketball seasons. Students are talking about a ski club, too - go and help them organize it. Or, if you're not quite so sports-minded, try the chess club or the model rocket club. Interested in radios? Students are presenting their own one-hour radio productions in the school. Maybe your interests are more in the spectator variety. We've got plenty to satisfy you there, too. Our Variety Night's over for this year, but don't miss the Drama Class Presentation on Nov. 10. There's a lot of talent involved and it's great entertainment as well. Our band concerts are going to be bigger and better than ever this year. There's a Folk Festival scheduled for January, and, if you like folk music, that's the place to be. The March musical is our big production of the year - Mrs. Ellyn Mells and Mr. Willie Mathis are looking after that and we know it's going to be great. Our annual Fashion Show is the chance to show off the talents of our future seamstresses, and who doesn't love clothes? Graduation is the highlight of every year, at least for the Grade 12 students. The Grad Committee's hard at work, as usual. They recently hosted the annual Faculty Induction Ceremony and Tea, and it was a eat success. Some of their future plans include a dunk tank, a car bash, a car wash, and a chocolate bar sale. The money raised all goes toward the Grad Banquet in April, and the Graduation Ceremony and Dance in May. We've got a student-operated newspaper to report on all these happenings, too. In it, you'll find opinionated articles on controversial topics, as well, as some poetry and story material. We're looking forward to their first edition, which will be circulated early next week. Our Athletic Teams are great this year and we're really proud of them. Our Girl's Volleyball Team has won all. of the ten games they've played, and the boys have won six games out of ten. Churchill is hosting a Volleyball Tournament this Saturday - the University of Lethbridge, McCoy High from Medicine Hat, and Milk River will be attending. All spectators are welcome - games start at one o'clock. Volleyball season ends in March and is followed by basketball and track - let's see all of you athletes out there!  * * Sadie Hawkin's Day is coming soon! Don't miss our celebration dance. Well, tonight's the night - Churchill and LCI's big football game. We'll see you there, eight o'clock - and bring a friend! (The views voiced in the above column do not necessarily concur with either those of The Herald or Leister's, but are a reflection of the student opinion.) term he was familiar with, and understood quite thoroughly. Teachers Mrs. P. Barbara Jensen and Mrs. Sherrie Kwan chose the topic of behavior analysis for one third of the social studies course which was open for individual choice. The course, which was borrowed1 from the University of Lethbridge library, was only published in 1969 and uses the modified lab approach for guided inquiries into the cause and effect of human behavior. The pupils learn how to approach the study of human behavior with the objectivity of scientists. They are urged to ask questions such as: what actually happened?- why?- will it happen again?-was it a good or bad thing? The class of 98 students is seated at random throughout the school's new open area. As one instructor teaches a new concept or goes over the major techniques of data collection, the other teacher is free to answer individual questions that would otherwise disturb the concentration of the entire class. During one exercise, two boys are drawing. First Tommy ripped Jimmy's paper and the class decided they liked Jimmy better. Then Jimmy asked Tommy for hlelp and the class decided this was good. In an action like this, terms such as role playing, behavior specimen, interaction, description, inference, and value jud-ments are all explained and discussed in relation to the problem. The students learn that an inference is guessing about behavior and value judgment is a standard for good or bad. An illustrative exercise pictures a girl playing with a kitten. Students must mark statements either to be descriptive, inferences or value judgments. These could include: Margo is smiling; Margo likes kittens; it is wrong to tease kittens. For behavior they learn the effect and what reason caused it. Pupils match statements such as Jimmy tripped in the aisle - Danny's foot was in the aisle. The . class all decided that they should study cause and effect, so that they can use it to study other problems and understand how they work. Mrs. Jensen says this may seem very simple, but the children all study the new information they have gained within the framework of their own lives. For instance: why is one girl always left by herself while everyone else skips or why does another boy make so much noise in class? It is the first step to understanding the way a whole society functions. The three-week study will conclude with the pupils conducting views and listening to recordings of other children's interviews. They will evaluate by deciding if the interviewer has purpose in his questions, was relaxed and1 eliminated personal opinions. The interview subject also had to have meaningful answers and stay on the topic. Results will be tabulated on simple charts. This study will be followed by a history unit on Alberta. The teacher will ask questions such as: why did the settlers come? -what was the Indians' reaction?- what was it like to be alone on the prairie? By covering history in this manner the major facts and dates are learned incidentally by the pupils because they are concentrating more on cause and effect. This approach makes social studies anything but cut-and-dried history. TWO IN ONE - Teachers Mrs. Sherrie Kwan, left and Mrsj Barbara Jensen, far right, work on a new social science, course with their combined Grade 4 classes at Westminster Elementary School. The class uses the random-style open area room which was recently renovated for this purpose.

Miss Tiger-Cat Tries Again HAMILTON (CP) - Linda Endicott of nearby Burlington was named Miss Tiger-Cat 1970 a week after she was crowned Miss Burlington and a year after she reached the final of the 1969 Miss Tiger-Cat contest only to come down with influenza. Iinda, 19, won over Nancy Bradley, 22, and Ilona Stanai-tis, 20, both of Hamilton. Linda, five-feet-six and 118 pounds, will represent the Tiger-Cats in the Miss Grey Cup contest. hours a British midwife has with patients during her training," Mrs. Myles said in an interview. "The majority of Canadian hospitals have either an Australian, New Zealand or British nurse in charge of the labor room and practically the entire north is manned by nurses from these countries." Canadians, she said, still have the attitude that midwives are "second best," but in Britain they are a highly-respected part of the obstetrical team. Mrs. Myles, 77, has just returned from a tour of the Northwest Territories where she gave 36 lectures to nurses. "I feel strongly that the Canadian woman is not getting education or organized classes of instruction she should during pregnancy.

Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: We recently returned from visiting our son, his wife and their three children. There is serious trouble in that family and I don't know what to do about it. Can you help? The youngest child is deaf. Because of her handicap the older children must cater to her and wait on her hand and foot. They get blamed for everything. Of course, the handicapped child is spoiled rotten, grossly overweight thoroughly obnoxious. Her brothers dislike her intensely. She has no friends. If she doesn't get her way in everything she has a temper tantrum. The mother has a guilt complex because the child's deafness is a congenital condition caused by an illness contracted during her pregnancy. When the deaf child's father corrects her the mother jumps all over him. He has learned to keep quiet in order to keep peace in the family. Don't suggest a clergyman. They don't believe in religion. And don't suggest a doctor because they don't believe in doctors either. Wlhat's the answer? - Sad Grandma. DEAR GRANDMA: Do they believe in mental hospitals? They will eventually, because that's where this child might end up unless someone steps in and does something. The child's father should insist that she has to be taken to a school that evaluates handicapped children. The County or State Medical Society can direct him. The person who does the evaluation will recognize the problem and the father will then have an ally. Handicapped children should be treated as if they were normal in every instance where it is possible to do so. The worst thing a parent can do is to allow a handiepped child to use his defect to take advantage of others. �3M�> ODDFELLOWS HILL HURST NIGHT SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17th DANCE 9 TO 1 VINCE DITRICH ORCHESTRA YWCA News Commencing Oct. 19 Mon. at Agnes Davison School 7-8 p.m. All Junior Hi School age group invited.
