Gillespie, Judith A.; Patrick, John J.
This teacher's guide to unit three of the first-semester "Comparing Political Experiences" course provides teaching instructions to meet the unit objectives. The guide outlines instructional objectives and procedures for each of the 16 activities described in the 12th-grade student materials. Each instructional procedure is designed to provide students with ample opportunities to acquire and use knowledge and skills described by the objectives. Four main objectives and 14 specific objectives of the course are outlined in the introductory section. The four main objectives include in-depth knowledge of various kinds of political activities, knowledge of alternative patterns of political activities found in different political systems, skill development needed to formulate and test hypotheses, and knowledge and skill development in facilitating and organizing political participant roles. Included are reaction forms to be filled out by the teacher to evaluate the effectiveness of the unit. (Author/DE)
