Teaching Guide on International Terrorism: Definitions, Causes, and Responses.
United States Inst. of Peace, Washington, DC.
Dealing with terrorism has become the centerpiece of United States foreign policy today. Yet terrorism--its definition, causes, and methods of dealing with it--has rarely been dealt with in high school courses. The United States Institute of Peace has developed this 3-lesson plan (for 45-minute class periods) teaching guide, aimed at grades 11 and 12. The guide cites educational objectives, lists teaching materials needed, and provides advance preparation information. It is divided into the following parts: "Introduction"; "Lesson I. What Is Terrorism? (1-2 periods)" ("Handout 1. Defining Terrorism Worksheet" and "Handout 2. Definitions of Terrorism"); "Lesson II. What Are Some of the Likely Causes of Terrorism? (1 period)" ("Handout 3. Causes of Terrorism" and "Handout 4. Profile of a Terrorist: Osama bin Laden"); "Lesson III What Are the Alternative Responses to Terrorism? (1 period)" ("Handout 5. Ideas Evaluation Sheet", and "Handout 6. Responses to Terrorism"); and "Resources on Terrorism." (BT)
