Teacher Resource Manual for Civics.
Smith, Melinda R., Ed.
The learning activities in this resource manual supplement three commonly taught units in the secondary civics curriculum: law, government, and consumer economics. The activities were chosen to meet objectives of the New Mexico Basic Skills Plan. Although geared toward ninth-grade-level students, the activities can generally be adapted for students at different skill levels. The activities are organized into three major sections: 1) law including criminal law, juvenile law, individual rights law, students' rights and responsibilities, and court system; 2) government, its structure, and political process; and 3) consumer economics including consumer awareness, consumer redress, and money. Each self-contained activity has a cover page which describes the activity, suggestions for where to use it in the curriculum, and explanations of the procedures for using it. A variety of teaching strategies are utilized--brainstorming, opinion polls/surveys, role-play situations, simulations, case studies, mock trials, and field trips. (Author/RM)
