Save the System! Teacher's Guide, Experimental Edition.
Gillespie, Judith A.; Lazarus, Stuart
Since the first unit of the second-semester "Comparing Political Experiences" course is self-instructional, this teaching guide focuses mainly on instructional objectives, mastery tests, and application exercises. The objectives and mastery tests are provided for each of the five lessons in the student materials. Following the completion of the mastery quizzes for each lesson, students work in groups on an application lesson. This lesson provides students with an opportunity to work with concepts beyond the level of simple definition. For example, since the concept of political system is taught in episode one of the student materials, the application lesson requires students to work in groups to apply the defining characteristics of a political system as they create their own political system.
