Guidelines for Teaching Flag Etiquette in Missouri Public Schools.
Missouri State Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, Jefferson City.
This guide aims to help teachers provide appropriate instruction for young people about the United States flag and flag etiquette. The guide was developed as a result of legislation (House Bill 630) enacted by the Missouri General Assembly in 1997. Following an introduction, the guide is divided into the following sections: (1) "Statutory Authority" (gives the complete text of the law); (2) "Ideas for Instruction in Flag Etiquette" (presents 10 different activities for both young and older students); and (3) "Resources" (includes school and public libraries, organizations, and web sites). Two appendixes provide excerpts from the Flag Code and State Board of Education's regulation on flag etiquette. (BT)
