Wallace, Dennis L.; Cvancara, Joseph G., Ed.
This curriculum guide is designed as an aid for teachers and students of vocational agriculture to use in the teaching and learning of correct usage of parliamentary procedures. Addressed in the four sections of the unit are the following topics: parliamentary privileged motions (to fix adjournment times, to adjourn, to take a recess, to question privilege, and to call for orders of the day); parliamentary subsidiary motions (laying motions on the table, handling previous motions, limiting or extending the limits of a debate, postponing actions definitely, referring items to committee, making and amending amendments, and postponing items indefinitely); parliamentary main motions (making main motions; taking them from the table; reconsidering, rescinding, expunging, and adopting motions; adjourning; and creating and amending orders of the day); and parliamentary incidential motions (suspending rules, withdrawing a motion, reading papers, objecting to a consideration, making a parliamentary inquiry, appealing a decision of the chair, and calling for divisions of the house and of a question.) Appendixes to the unit contain a list of topics for parliamentary law contests and a list of oral questions for parliamentary law contests. A bibliography concludes the guide. (MN)
