Teaching techniques used include questioning techniques to facilitate classroom discussion, games, and dramatics. The following units are outlined: 1) Political Systems; 2) Political Parties and Elections; 3) Executive Process; 4) Legislative Process; and 5) Judicial Process. Concepts to be taught along with the corresponding classroom activities and evaluation criteria are defined for each unit.
