NEA Bicentennial Ideabook: Programs, Ideas, Resources.
Durfee, Arnold; And Others
The central theme of this ideabook on the Bicentennial is the extension of the human rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to the United States and the rest of the world. The ideabook is divided into three sections. Section one describes 17 proposed projects based upon a central Bicentennial program entitled "A Declaration of Interdependence: Education for a Global Community." Each project is dependent upon funding outside the National Association (NEA). Section two offers a sample listing of innovative activities for classroom use. The first part of this section -- Heritage -- suggests class activities to probe into our nation's development, especially the human rights and cultural diversity qualities. The second part of this section -- Horizon -- suggests class activities for dealing with problems facing the global community including energy, political action, transportation, population, shared education, a common system of measurement, and communication. Section three lists national, regional, and state Bicentennial funding sources. (Author/DE)
