Study Canada: International Outlook.
Monahan, Robert L.; And Others
This self-contained unit of study on Canada is one of a series which can be used to supplement secondary level courses of social studies, contemporary world problems, government, history, and geography. Developed by teachers, the unit focuses on international relations. A comparative approach is used which stresses understanding Canada from Canadian and American viewpoints. The units contain teacher instructions, all student materials including readings, and suggestions for activities. Students are expected to read the short selections and participate in classroom discussions. Topics of reading selections include "Canada in World Organizations,""Energy Issues,""Canada-U.S. Trade," and "Views of the 1980 Olympics Boycott." Students are also involved in many activities. A few examples follow. In one activity students debate whether or not nuclear technology should be exported. In another activity students play the simulation "Negotiation" that illustrates trade relations between countries. Teachers are encouraged to reproduce any portion of the units for classroom use. Units are planned for one to three weeks but may be extended up to five weeks if teachers want to enrich the content and activities. (Author/RM)
