The Democratic Legacy: Basis for Freedom. A Program of Citizenship for Virginia's Public Schools.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond. Div. of Secondary Education.
This program outline is intended for teachers K-12. The outline provides teachers with the philosophy and goals of teaching citizenship education as a means of instilling an appreciation of the American democratic heritage. The emphasis is on citizenship preparation through an integration of the study of government, history, sciences, mathematics, literature, and music. There is one section on practical classroom activities for teaching the rule of law, one of the perceived cornerstones of citizenship education, but the work is generally devoted to giving the teacher the necessary background in the rationale for citizenship education. A four page bibliography of historical and educational philosophy pertaining to democratic values is included. (CWB)
