The Democratic Process: Promises and Challenges.
Bragaw, Donald, Ed.
When the Berlin Wall (East Germany) came down, it symbolically foretold the end of the Soviet Union domination of Eastern Europe and Central Asia. This resource guide examines the process toward democratization occurring in those regions. The guide updates the available classroom material on the democratic process. It is divided into three sections: (1) "Promises and Challenges" (contains five essays and nine lessons); (2) "Voices of Transition" (contains eight essays and eight lessons); and (3) "Fostering a Democratic Dialogue" (contains 3 essays and eight lessons). Includes six maps. Appended are: (1) Comprehensive Social Studies Assessment Project Standards; (2) CSSAP--Portfolio Project; (3) C. Title VI Centers with Teacher Resources; and (4) D. Democracy Education Exchange Project (DEEP). (BT)
