Presidential Journey to the White House.
Marion, L. Marvin
The social studies unit was written for middle and high school students as well as for gifted/talented elementary students. It covers the process of electing a president. Goals and performance objectives are specified along with a flow chart depicting concepts, generalizations, and skills to be taught over the 2- or 3-week period. This unit will enable the student to: be exposed to the democrative method of selecting candidates to run for the office and of electing a U.S. president every four years; become acquainted with issues involved in political campaigns; be involved in mock conventions, debates, speeches, campaigns and voting; and examine terminology related to the process of electing a president. Several lesson plans are included with information on concepts, objectives, materials, and procedures. Games are then described dealing with past U.S. presidents. A four-page bibliography, which includes names and addresses of organizations which have relevant teaching materials, and several films and slide/tape sets, ends the document. (CL)
