Justice Education Teaching Strategies (JETS): K-6, 3.
Nelson, Murry, Ed.
One in a series of K-6 teaching guides, this guide contains classroom activities dealing with citizenship education for use with children in grade 3. The purpose of the series is to promote and maintain positive student attitudes and behavior and to assist students in understanding their rights and meeting their responsibilities to help insure the safety and welfare of self and others. There are three units of study. Most of the units are self-contained. However, some of the activities require the use of publisher available resources. In Unit I, "Understanding Self and Others," students learn about feelings, responsibility, and conflict. Unit II, "Understanding Society," examines rules and authority. Protective strategies is the topic of Unit III, "Understanding Safety and Crime Resistance." Students are involved in many different kinds of activities. Some examples follow. In the unit on values, the teacher reads value situations to the students and has them answer questions posed in each situation. In another activity in this unit, students debate value issues. In the unit on responsibility, students produce a play called "A Neglected Responsibility." In the unit on laws, students read and discuss bicycle laws and then make a poster presenting and illustrating one of the laws. The authority unit involves students in checking the encyclopedia to find the names given to policemen in other countries and posting their names on a world map. In other activities, students complete worksheets, analyze cartoons, present a play on shoplifting, and unscramble words. The guide concludes with a listing of print and nonprint student materials.
