Social Studies: Americanism vs. Communism.
A twelfth grade quinmester course designed to give the student an objective overview of the development of Communism vis-a-vis Americanism (Democracy) is outlined in this guide. The course focuses on what each way of life represents and their respective positions in world politics. Included are case studies in communist expansion, the communist involvement in the developing areas, and United States response to deter the spread of Communism. Strategies for coexistence of the two systems are explored, and student suggestions on ways to improve the quality of Americanism are encouraged. The guide itself is divided into a broad goals section, a content outline, objectives and learning activities, and materials for teacher and student. Learning activities are organized around the course goals, and include small and large group discussions, individual research projects, reports, and out-of-class projects. A variety of media are employed, including books and pamphlets, films and filmstrips.
