Social Studies: A Nation Divided Against Itself.
Ferraro, Patricia; And Others
This curriculum guide, designed for the quinmester system, is an aide to secondary grade teachers as they plan instructional programs, and takes into account students' needs, available resources, and other factors. Objectives of this course of study are for the student to understand the causes and issues that led to the Civil War, the course and strategies of that war, and the results of the struggle. It is hoped that a conceptual transfer of learning occurs whereby students gain insight into today's issues that divide America and acquire suggestions about their resolution. One main idea is to make students aware that there are ways of resolving social, political, and economic differences within a nation peacefully, but if differences are not settled amicably war sometimes occurs. Included is a list of: review activities, textbooks, paperbacks, pamphlets, supplementary books, film resources, multi-media resources, captioned filmstrips, records and teaching tapes. Related documents are: SO 002 708 through SO 002 718, and SO 002 768 through SO 002 792. (Author/SJM)
