Political Terrorism: A Mini-Course for High School Social Studies.
By participating in the 2-week mini-course, high school students will learn that (1) there is a difference between political terror and other criminal activity; (2) governments as well as nongovernmental groups engage in political terrorism; (3) political terrorism has been present throughout history; (4) political terrorism is a world wide problem; (5) a personality profile of a typical member of a terrorist group exists; and (6) there is no best strategy for governments to use in dealing with terrorist groups. Teaching strategies include role playing, analysis of data, case study analyses, oral presentations, research, and classroom discussion. All materials and background information necessary to teach the basic course are included; however, to implement some of the follow-up activities, access to outside resources, such as novels, is necessary.
