Parliamentary Procedure Made Easy.
Hayden, Ellen T.
Based on the newly revised "Robert's Rules of Order," these self-contained learning activities will help students successfully and actively participate in school, social, civic, political, or professional organizations. There are 13 lessons. Topics studied include the what, why, and history of parliamentary procedure; characteristics of the ideal presiding officer; responsibilities of ideal members; order of business; classification and rank of motions; main motion; motions to amend main motion, to refer to committee, to appeal, and to adjourn; and nominations and elections. The activities are many and varied and involve students in writing an essay on and drawing a poster tracing the history of parliamentary procedure, completing crossword puzzles, role playing, answering true-false questions, conducting a practice election, and participating in classroom discussions. Provided for each lesson are objectives, a list of resources needed, activities, and evaluation procedures. All student handouts and transparencies are included. A glossary of terms is also provided.
