Workplace Civics & Government. Prospectus for a Multimedia Curriculum.
Raney, Mardell, Ed.
This guide is designed to help students understand civics and government as well as the social, organizational, and technological systems that effect citizenship. It proposes use of a multimedia curriculum intended to combine the skills, knowledge, and content of civics with the workplace. The guide provides a rationale for an interdisciplinary curriculum focusing on the workplace and on civics; an outline of topics, goals, and characteristics of the project; possible instructional techniques; course and lesson organization; student materials; and ideas about teacher training and support. The guide also includes operational suggestions useful in implementing the program such as state enrollment fees, focus questions, standards, essential concepts, and proposed illustrations. (TSV)
