How Can We Preserve Our Security without Sacrificing Essential Freedom. Grade Twelve. [Resource Unit I.] Project Social Studies.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.
This is the first of seven resource units which constitute a twelfth grade course on value conflicts and policy decisions. The topic of this unit is how we can preserve our security without sacrificing essential freedom. Introductory notes explain the unit format and discuss teaching strategies. Objectives for the unit are listed as they relate to values, skills, and attitudes. A double-page format relates objectives to pertinent content, teaching procedures, and instructional materials. The unit poses the question: To what degree do radical groups provide a threat to American Security? The material covers current examples of security-freedom as it related to draft protests, demonstrations, and the like. The unit examines the role of civil liberties, in a democracy and presents alternative courses of action which have been tried or posed to safeguard security. These alternatives are examined in terms of the value conflicts involved, the probable or past effectiveness of each in helping achieve its aim of promoting security, and the probable or past effects of such a course of action on civil liberties. A bibliography is included. The teacher's guide for this course is SO 006 331; other units are SO 006 333-338. (Author/KSM)
