Busing in Boston, Teacher's Guide: Political Issues. Comparing Political Experiences, Experimental Edition.
Gillespie, Judith A.; Lazarus, Stuart
This teachers guide to unit two of the second-semester "Comparing Political Experiences" course provides specific objectives and instructional procedures for each of the four student activities on the Boston busing controversy. In addition, the guide gives instruction for coordinating the use of the student materials, audiovisual material, data packet, and skill kit for the unit. Knowledge objectives, analytical skill objectives, moral-reasoning skill objectives, participation skill objectives, and the instructional design of the course are described in the introductory section. A main objective of the study of the conflict in Boston is to move beyond the concrete examples to knowledge of abstract political concepts applicable to any situation. Included are reaction forms to be filled out by the teachers to evaluate the effectiveness of the unit. (Author/DE)
