One Nation Under God? School Prayer and the First Amendment. Teacher's Guide.
Sass, Charles R.
This teacher's guide is designed to accompany the two-part videotape "One Nation Under God? School Prayer and the First Amendment." The videotape and teacher's guide should help students to: (1) understand the history of freedom of religion and the First Amendment; (2) examine the controversy surrounding school prayer; (3) compare and contrast the many perspectives and viewpoints Americans have on school prayer, moment of silence requirements, the First Amendment, freedom of religion, and the Establishment Clause; and (4) develop informed opinions about the issue and discuss the future of school prayer. The guide contains four activities that employ student handouts. The activities provide a variety of educational experiences for students, including: class discussions, small-group work, research, and writing. The active learning approach encourages students to go beyond recognition or knowledge of facts to begin analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating the issues and concepts being studied. (LH)
