The Bill of Rights: A Handbook.
The purpose of this companion to SO 001 250 is to provide teachers with specific information for improving instruction concerned with individual freedom and responsibility. The need for improvement has been established by studies indicating little or no change in the political orientation of high school students from the formal civics curriculum, resulting in high school graduates with a low level of appreciation and commitment to the American Bill of Rights. Three essays in Part One set the problem. Part Two offers solutions through teacher education and the use of case studies in instruction; also included is an outline of California's program. Part Three offers specific learning experiences, e.g., social studies units and lessons, in a variety of social studies classrooms, from world history to student government. Part Four includes various aids for the teacher: a bibliography of selected teacher and student readings, audio-visual aids, a table of cases, and the expanded Bill of Rights. (Author/DJB)
