Nicholaou, T. L.
This guide for an elective (10-12) course was written as part of a total effort to revise curriculum to fit the quinmester administrative organization of schools. The guide is divided into: 1) a broad goals section; 2) a content outline; 3) objectives and learning activities; and, 4) recommended and supplementary teacher and student resources. The course presents an analysis of social change and the role of protest in American history, with selected examples, types of protest, and their effectiveness in bringing about change. Goals for the course are that the student will: 1) differentiate among various methods of protest; 2) identify protest as commonly being an action based upon a real or imagined fear of losing one's security or survival; 3) discern how values are formed, changed, and related to protest; 4) propose an alternate course of protest or response to a selected incident; and, 5) ascertain and analyze the role of protest with respect to the individual. Course content is organized around these goals. Related documents are: SO 002 708 through SO 002 718, SO 002 768 through SO 002 792, and SO 002 947 through SO 002 970. (Author/AWW)
