What Is America? Discussions, Volume II.
Roeder, Robert E., Ed.; And Others
Volume II contains 20 discussion units for the final five months of the Calendar for the American Issues Forum Bicentennial program (see SO 008 613 for Vol. I). Discussion topics in this book include Working in America; the Business of America; America in the World; Growing up in America; and Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Although a variety of instructional procedures are suggested, all of the units are intended to engage students in structured activities leading them to active inquiry and participation in class discussions. Designed for secondary social studies and history classes, the units provide students with a special, activity-oriented one-day discussion for each of the 36 weekly subtopics of the calendar. Each of the one-day units is a self-contained package which includes suggestions to the teacher for procedures, readings, instructions, and questions. A regional bibliography appends the document, and contains listings of in-print materials. (Author/JR)
