Maine Univ., Orono. New England - Atlantic Provinces - Quebec Center.
In this Learning Activity Packet (LAP) students, mostly in small groups, analyze and compare a few major features of the Canadian and American governments. The LAP is divided into six learning objectives: 1) Both the United States and Canada are sovereign nations. What is sovereignty? What are nations?; 2) People throughout the world are governed in many ways. Canada and the U.S. are very much alike.; 3) What is a leader? What kinds of leadership exists in your group? How does a leader gain his position? In what ways is a leader needed? Nations have leaders. What do they do? In what different styles do they lead? Are all leaders good leaders? Why not?; 4) If people are to live under governments, how do they protect themselves from allowing the leaders and government from becoming too powerful?; 5) How are leaders chosen? How do you choose the leaders of your group? How do countries choose their leaders? U.S. and Canada? State or province?; and, 6) What is federalism? How does it work? What are similarities between the two countries. Each objective is accompanied by suggested learning activities. Some other LAPs are SO 006 140-145. (OPH)
