Values and Society.
Nelson, Jack L.
The idea of a democratic society based on human rights and social justice is the social issue examined in this book which is one of a series on challenges and choices in American values. The format followed in the series includes the following for secondary students: case studies illustrating the issue by focusing on human institutions, factual information about the issue which can be used as evidence in making social decisions, divergent views and opposing value judgements showing a variety of values involved in solving the issue, futuristic scenarios illustrating possible consequences of social decisions in future situations, suggestions for involvement in the issues and the decisions, and recommendations for further study. Some of the American traditions examined are those of unity, diversity and individuality, migration and restriction, American languages, minorities, and assimilation. Different cultures and values are compared throughout history and between nations. Futuristic scenarios are on the topics of civil liberties and consumer rights. Suggested resources include activities, films, multimedia kits, and simulations and games. (Author/KSM)
