The Underdeveloped Countries. Grade Twelve. [Resource Unit III.] Project Social Studies.
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.
This is the third of seven resource units for a twelfth grade course on value conflicts and policy decisions. The topic for this unit is the underdeveloped countries. The objectives are listed as to generalizations, skills, and values. The double-page format relates objectives to pertinent content, teaching procedures, and instructional materials. This unit focuses on the problems of underdeveloped countries around the world in order to understand the relationship of these problems to foreign policy issues facing the United States, to study in more detail causes of the problems and difficulties of introducing technological change, and to consider policy alternatives facing not only the underdeveloped countries but also the United States' foreign aid and trade policies. These alternatives involve a series of value conflicts as well as non-normative questions related to the consequences of different courses of action. This unit draws heavily upon economics, anthropology, and to some extent on geography. The teacher's guide is SO 006 331; other units are SO 006 332-336 and SO 006 338. (Author/KSM)
