Paradox Politics: Idaho Political History since WW II. A Study Guide for Teachers.
Idaho Humanities Council, Boise.
This study guide is a product of the Idaho Humanities Council (IHC). The guide is the result of IHC's July 2002 summer institute for teachers held at Albertson College of Idaho (Caldwell). Twenty five Idaho teachers participated. They explored U.S. Constitutional issues and political decisions and participated in a simulated congressional hearing as a culminating activity. The guide is divided into six units: (1) "What are the philosophical and historical foundations of the American political system?"; (2) "How did the framers create the Constitution?"; (3) "How did the values and principles embodied in the Constitution shape American institutions and practices?"; (4) "How have the protections of the Bill of Rights been developed and expanded?"; (5) "What rights does the Bill of Rights protect?"; and (6) "What are the roles of the citizen in American democracy?" Each unit includes student questions. Contains an extensive bibliography of suggested texts (Steve Shaw). (BT)
