Civics Curriculum Guide. Secondary Social Studies. Bulletin 1600.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Academic Programs.
This curriculum guide for secondary teachers outlines resource units in civics. Although intended for use by teachers in Louisiana, the guide can be used or adapted by educators in any state. The guide includes six sections dealing with the following topics: introduction to citizenship, national government, state and local government, international relations, consumer economics, and the law and civic education. From one to four units are outlined within each section. Objectives, concepts, generalizations, and learning activities and a vocabulary list are provided for each unit. Teachers will find it necessary to develop the resource units structured by the curriculum guide into teaching units and lesson plans. Also included are a bibliography of student materials and a discussion of evaluation techniques. The appendix contains two skills charts. One of the charts identifies skills that are to be cooperatively developed and are, therefore, shared responsibilities of social studies teachers and others. The other chart designates those skills which are the major responsibility of the social studies program. (Author/RM)
