Citizenship: A Curriculum Guide. Grade Nine.
Indiana State Dept. of Public Instruction, Indianapolis.
This guide is designed to be useful to teachers as they outline courses and daily lesson plans. No attempt has been made to plan in detail for a teacher, however, content outlines are thorough. An effort has been made to acquaint the teacher with the formulation and use of generalizations as an aid to teaching pupils to think; critically suggested reflective questions are also offered for this purpose. Designed to be used with any textbook, the units are: 1) Development of American Political Institutions; 2) Development of American Educational Institutions; 3) Development of American Economic Institutions; and, 4) Development of American Religious Institutions. Introductory sections of the guide discuss its use, an orientation for the social studies, academic freedom, goals, and learning theory. In addition, a resources bibliography is contained in each.
