Legislative Process, Grade Eight. Resource Unit (Unit IV).
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 legislative process. The unit uses case studies such as the Civil Rights Acts of 1960 and 1964 and attempts to change the Rules Committee in 1961. It also uses much data on background of congressmen and on distribution of committee chairmen according to region, and analyzes voting behavior in terms of district represented. Objectives are followed by the main body of the unit which contains two content outlines. The first outline presents an organized body of content to illustrate the relationship of the content to the major generalizations and teaching activities. The second outline suggests the order in which content might be taught. A bibliography and a teacher's film guide concludes the unit. The teacher's guide is SO 007 511. (Author/KSM)
