Accept the Challenge: Teaching about the Constitution.
Otto, Jean H.
Social Education, v54 n6 p361-62 Oct 1990
Contends citizenship education should teach a living U.S. Constitution, rather than a blueprint for government. Stresses teachers' responsibility to instruct students about responsibilities as citizens as well as rights. Argues citizenship education, specifically, and social studies, in general, must teach individuals how to live together with others in a democratic, self-governing society. (CH)
