Citizen Me: An Experiential Curriculum for Citizenship Education. Level: Seven.
Francis, Linda E.
The Citizen Me Level Seven guide incorporates the project's goal of providing a curriculum which integrates concepts of basic citizenship education with community involvement through gaining an understanding of rights, liberties, and obligations of citizens, understanding the free enterprise system, and applying values that lead to skill in human relationships and effective citizenship. The 14 lessons deal with the process of establishing a community, with students working in small groups and role playing in positions of leadership in the community they settle. The lessons deal with such topics as leadership, citizen responsibilities, problem solving, and various aspects of government and the law, and are to be completed in sequence as each lesson builds on another. Role cards provide background information, traits/personality, and reasons for joining the group. Land data cards simulate various geographic settings. While the unit is appropriate as an introductory or culminating experience for colonization of Texas, the guide is timeless and can pertain to any frontier or new settlement in a future society.
