Understanding Nuclear Weapons and Arms Control: A Guide to the Issues. Instructor's Manual.
Zahka, William J.; Mayers, Teena Karsa
Intended for teachers of secondary and college level students, this instructor's guide presents an overview of materials covered in the student text, followed by four categories of examination questions and teaching aids. The guide reflects the format of the student text and is divided into four sections. A brief description is provided of each section of the student text: Section I gives the reader factual background on the beginning of the atomic age during the Truman years through the Reagan administration; section II defines the various types of nuclear weapons; section III discusses the negotiating process, SALT talks, verification, existing treaties and agreements, ongoing arms control negotiations, and violation concerns; and section IV describes the effects of nuclear war and civil defense. For each section this guide presents four categories of examination questions: essay questions, true or false statements, multiple choice questions, and completion and fill-in questions. Test answers follow each category. A list of teaching aids intended to provide educators with a choice of projects, topics for debate and written reports, and library assignments is included for each section. (LH)
