Governor LeRoy Collins: Lessons in Leadership and Citizenship.
Karl, Ann Marie M.
This guidebook facilitates the study of the life and work of LeRoy Collins, Florida's 33rd Governor (1955-1961), through a law-related education program. It is designed to accompany the instructional videotape about Collins, "Where He Stood." The goal is to have all Florida students and future citizens identify, appreciate, and be able to define and analyze Governor Collins' major achievements, especially his leadership and character. In the process of studying the governor's achievements, students' analytic and comparative skills should be refined. They should make connections regarding Florida issues, then and now, encouraging constructive approaches for dealing with today's problems. Students also are encouraged to examine the issues that will face Florida in 2000 and beyond, when Florida is expected to become the third largest state in the country. They also will be encouraged to develop a sense of values and educated opinions. The guidebook provides a variety of student worksheet guides and other resource materials for teachers. (LH)
