One of a series of social studies units designed to develop the reading and writing skills of low achievers, this student activity book focuses on the theme of revolution. The unit can be used for high school classes, individual study in alternative and continuing high schools, and adult education classes. Following an introduction, material is divided into separate sections on the French Revolution, terrorism, military coups d'etat, intellectual and social revolutions, and present-day examples of revolutions. Topics covered within these sections include the reign of the Ayatollah Khomeini, draft dodgers, the hippies, and the war in Vietnam. Each section consists of a reading which combines social studies information with the development of vocabulary and aural discrimination skills. The appendix contains an additional reading on the Ayatollah Khomeini. (LP)
