Union Underground, Teacher's Guide: Political Issues. Comparing Political Experiences, Experimental Edition.
Gillespie, Judith A.; Lazarus, Stuart
This teacher's guide to unit three of the second-semester "Comparing Political Experiences" course provides specific objectives and instructional procedures for each of five activities that focus on the United Mine Workers of America (UWMA). In addition, the guide provides instructions for coordinating the use of the student book, audiovisual material, and skill kit for the unit. The introduction includes a statement of the general rationale; knowledge objectives; skill objectives consisting of analytical, moral-reasoning, and participation skills; instructional design; and evaluation materials for the course and the unit. A major objective in the study of the UMWA is that it can serve as an example of a system experiencing maintenance. Students observe the changing pattern of political resources and activities in the union and then may apply the concept of maintenance to new and different situations. Included are reaction forms to be filled out by the teacher to evaluate the effectiveness of the unit. (Author/DE)
