Russia/USSR. A Cultural Area Teacher's Manual, 1969.
Illinois Univ., Urbana. Social Science Curriculum Study Center.
The last of three indepth studies of cultural areas in today's world that comprise course III and build upon a course described in SO003 517 are provided in this secondary teaching guide on Russia. The purpose is to present data on the people, physical environment, and aspects of social, economic, and political life in the hope that students will understand the characteristics and value structure in Russia, thereby preparing them with skills to analyze other countries cross culturally. Revolution and continuity are two concepts that are emphasized in a thematic approach, since both conditions have contributed heavily to political, economic, and cultural changes. Seven sections offer materials rich in history which describe Russia's physical environment; the people; the changing population; cities of the past; cities of today; revolution -- economic development and cultural change; and Russia's search for new values. Annotated book, slide, and film bibliographies; classroom activities; and student readings are provided. Related documents are ED 048 062, SO 003 169 through SO 003 175, SO 003 515 through SO 003 517. (SJM)
