Teaching Civics.
Nicolosi, Louis J.; And Others
This curriculum guide, reflecting the recommendations of a statewide conference on civics held in 1965, offers a course of study to help students not only understand civics, but hopefully to motivate them toward future participation in the political process. A skills development chart is provided in order to determine tentative grade placement based on the needs and abilities of students in elementary and secondary grades. Emphasis is upon helping students develop the use skills as a prerequisite to effective learning of content material. Seven units are organized according to concepts, plan of presentation, teaching outlines, activities, and resource materials. Units are: 1) Our American heritage; 2) The citizen and his government; 3) The federal government; 4) Louisiana government; 5) Local government; 6) Forms of world governments and their relationship; 7) Government and the American economy. Appendices include a skills development chart and evaluation in civics. (Author/SJM)
