The Executive Process, Grade Eight. Resource Unit (Unit III).
Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis. Project Social Studies Curriculum Center.
This resource unit, developed by the University of Minnesota's Project Social Studies, introduces eighth graders to the executive process. The unit uses case studies of presidential decision making such as the decision to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, the Cuba Bay of Pigs and quarantine decisions, and the Little Rock decision. A case study of a governor's decision to declare martial law during a strike is also used. The first of two content outlines presents a logical outline of the sub-generalizations and data which supports major generalizations. The second outline offers a general order to follow in presentation along with correlated teaching procedures. Objectives are included and readings, decision making exercises, and a bibliography are appended. Teacher's guide is SO 007 511. (Author/KSM)
