Two films made in the 1960's, "The Troublemakers" and "16 in Webster Groves," present a problem of democracy worthy of young people's consideration--social responsibility--and can be studied in the context of a general unit on responsibility. One way of presenting "16 in Webster Groves" is through devising, distributing, and discussing a poll like that used in the film. "The Troublemakers" can be shown in three sections, with students discussing and writing a paper on each section. The study of the films can be followed by a class project on planning a community. The purpose of the unit is to have children learn not the materials, which will become quickly dated, but rather the process of how to learn. (LH)
