Western Europe: The Political, Social, and Economic Systems of Britain, France, and Germany. Grade Eleven. [Resource Unit I, Sub Unit 3.] Project Social Studies.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.
These two subunits on Western Europe are part of one of four resource units for an eleventh grade area studies course. The subunits cover foreign policy and the political, social and economic systems of Britain, France, and Germany, and a summary section for the entire unit on Western Europe. Generalizations, skills, and attitudes are listed. The subunit is set up in a double-page format relating objectives to pertinent content, teaching procedures, and instructional materials. The subunit dealing with social, political and economic systems calls for comparison among the three countries and uses ideal types to help pupils make comparisons. The last part of the unit on foreign relations looks at attempts to bring about closer economic and political relationships among the countries of Western Europe and presents concepts of international trade. Pupils also examine the problems raised for the United States in some of these developments as well as other policy conflicts facing this country in relationship to Western Europe. The teacher's guide for the entire course is SO 006 320; other subunits on Western Europe are SO 006 322 and SO 006 323. (Author/KSM)
