Part of a sequential K-12 program, this teacher's guide provides objectives and activities for teaching social studies in grades 11 and 12. The document contains five major sections which correspond to the skill or concept being covered: learning, inquiry, and discussion skills, concepts, and values and moral reasoning. Learning skills include listening, speaking, viewing, reading, writing, and map abilities. Students conduct interviews, interpret television programs, research and write term papers, and make inferences from data supplied by maps. Inquiry skills involve classifying, drawing inferences, generalizing, distinguishing between fact and opinion, and evaluating sources of information. Students research and compare the political environment in two high schools and in two cities, analyze a political cartoon, make inferences from provided statements, and formulate and test hypotheses for several situations. Concepts stressed are conflict, interdependence, communication, multiple causation, political environment, and revolution. Students analyze newspaper stories, simulate a world conference, compare cultural forms of communication, and discuss influential figures in revolutions. Students work in groups for learning discussion skills, with each member being assigned a specific role. Several dialogues are provided in which students analyze the interaction. Finally, the document presents vignettes for students to analyze in terms of values and moral reasoning. (KC)
