Social Studies: Totalitarianism in the 20th Century.
Bartlett, Peggy M.
This elective course in world studies for grades 10 through 12 written as part of a total effort to revise curriculum to fit the five quinmester nine-week time periods for administrative organization of schools, provides an inductive analysis of the concept of totalitarianism. The student, given source material, primary information, and textual data will conceptualize a series of generalizations and will arrive at a comprehensive and applicable concept of totalitarianism. Since this course is designed to analyze and evaluate totalitarian systems generally, it should contribute to a healthier and more sensitive understanding of democratic systems. Units are structured on nine generalizations as described by Howard D. Mehlinger and conclude with an applicable definition of totalitarianism which may be compared with any previous or existing political system.
