One of a series of social studies units designed to develop the reading and writing skills of low achievers, this student activity book focuses on the theme of education. The unit can be used for high school classes, individual study in alternative and continuing high schools, and adult education classes. Following an introduction, the unit is divided into sections which cover the history of education, modern educational systems, and the future of education. Each section contains a reading which stresses development of vocabulary and aural distinction skills. An appendix contains readings and exercises which discuss public reactions to American schools and desegregation. (LP)
