You Choose! Electing Your Government. A Teacher's Guide with Lessons To Accompany the Video and CD-ROM. The Living Ohio Government Series.
Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board, Columbus, OH.; American NewMedia Educational Foundation, Worthington, OH.
This teacher's guide accompanies a video which focuses on Ohio's government system. The 30-minute stand alone video offers a teaching opportunity for exposing high school students to the responsibilities of participating in elections. The video covers the division of powers among federal, state, and local governments; distinguishes between elected and appointed officials; and explains the requirements necessary to vote in the United States. The video points out that only a small percentage of youth exercise their right to vote. The companion teacher's guide attempts to reinforce and expand upon the basic concepts addressed in the video and related CD-ROM. The lessons are designed to motivate students to vote in greater numbers. The teaching guide is divided into the following sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Objectives"; (3) "Summary of the Program"; (4) "Pre-Viewing Activities"; (5) "Post-Viewing Activities"; (6) "Vocabulary/Concept List"; (7) "Issues for Discussion"; and (8) "Additional Activities." Contains six handouts, a knowledge inventory with answer key, and a resource guide. (BT)
