Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.
This is a teacher's guide for a twelfth grade course on value conflicts and policy decision. The course is part of an articulated curriculum for grades K-12. This teacher guide contains goals for the course as they are related to values, skills, and concepts and generalizations. The focus of the course is on problems facing the United States at home and abroad which involve value conflicts and policy decisions. In each of the units pupils identify and examine value conflicts related to issues, using social science data, concepts, and generalizations in an attempt to find out which policy alternative will be most likely to achieve the values of goals desired. The topics are based on the issue of security-freedom at home in African countries of the Sahara and race problems at home and in the African countries. A general outline of the course in the overall curriculum is explained. The format of the resource units is presented as are the factors to consider in adapting the units to specific courses. Charts appended to the guide indicate the way in which goals were developed in the different units. The units are SO 006 332-338. (Author/KSM)
