Citizenship in New York City. Experimental.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Div. of Curriculum and Instruction.
This bulletin was designed to revitalize the teaching of civic responsibility and the moral and ethical principles that lead to good citizenship. It is a compendium of activity sheets that teachers either may duplicate and give to students, or use as guides for class activities. The bulletin is organized under six themes: (1) Understanding Yourself and Your Values; (2) The Citizen and the Law; (3) The Good Citizen; (4) The Citizen in the Neighborhood Community; (5) The Citizen and Municipal Services; and (6) The Citizen and Public Health and Safety. Each of the six parts of the guide has an overview and a listing of student activity sheets by number and title. On the back of each activity sheet are notes to the teacher, giving suggestions for structuring the exercises, alternative approaches, additional questions, development of the concepts, and ideas for motivation and activities that go beyond the classroom. Each activity is labeled elementary, secondary, or both, and notes indicate how each exercise may be adopted for use by students at different levels. Special suggestions also are given for adapting the activities for children in K-2 classrooms. A topical index allows teachers to select activities in which particular problems in the area of citizenship are addressed. (GC)
