Comparing Political Experiences.
Gillespie, Judith A.; Patrick, John J.
This monograph is intended to inform curriculum writers, evaluators, and consultants about the High School Political Science Curriculum Project's first year of work. The main purpose of the project is to develop, test, and disseminate a two-semester program entitled "Comparing Political Experiences." The program, designed to serve as an alternative approach to existing twelfth-grade courses in government, provides students with concrete experience in political participation. Contents include discussions of the following: (1) the purpose, underlying assumptions and instructional objectives of the program; (2) the specific content of the Comparing Political Experiences curricula; (3) the Competency-Based Instruction method used in the course; and (4) the curriculum development process. A bibliography is also included. (Author/RM)
