Methods of Teaching Parliamentary Procedure.
Niles, Doris
The teaching of parliamentary procedure as proposed in this paper is based on three areas of instruction--expository and persuasive speaking, organizing clubs and writing constitutions, and conducting business according to the 11 principles of parliamentary procedure. These areas, usually presented in sequence, are designed to (1) teach students to think logically and to write and speak clearly and concisely, (2) provide background in the history of parliamentary law, (3) offer practice in the correct procedures for making and passing motions, and (4) give students an opportunity to organize clubs and write constitutions both as a class exercise and in real life. Frequent practice sessions, primarily using role playing and drill, are described and suggested as a means of insuring the retention of the principles and rules of parliamentary procedure. (JM)
