Presenter's Guide to Perspectives (Law-Related Education). Draft.
Pratt, Robert B.
This document is the presenter's guide to SO 008 871. The document is the result of three and one-half years of effort to improve social studies in the secondary schools in Iowa. Perspectives, part one of the two-part series, presents information and background to aid in the reform, innovation, and evaluation of social studies programs. This supplement is designed to stimulate collective teacher use of Perspectives as a one-semester inservice training and curriculum revision program. The guide includes a short orientation to Perspectives and provides a brief summary of the content and methodology of the handbook. The bulk of the guide deals with the task of plugging a specific content area into Perspectives' methodological and analytical framework as a prototype for further curriculum revision. The content focus is limited to law-related education for a K-12 curriculum. The units focus on planning a program, the incorporation of objectives, questioning, values, inquiry, simulation, evaluation, and analytical perspectives. A series of appendices conclude the document. (Author/JR)
