Summary

The narrative selected for this unit on intolerance illustrates the perennial and universal methods for scapegoating. The general teaching objectives are to lead the students: 1) to feelings of tolerance toward individuals and groups who are different; 2) to investigate intolerance in terms of some of its causes: fear, deprivation, threatened self-interest, personal shortcomings; 3) to understand the nature of scapegoating; 4) to empathize with the victims of scapegoating; 5) to awareness of the practice of scapegoating in their own lives; 6) to appreciate the frustration and pain of being accused unjustly; 7) to appreciate the danger of governmental practices which allow for special repressive measures against certain groups or organizations deemed dangerous; and, 8) to develop skill in evaluating visual and written materials and to evaluate false and unjust accusations. The historical topics are: the Salem witchcraft trials with Biblical reference, and Senator Joseph McCarthy's accusations of Owen Lattimore, including the Red Scare of the early 1920's, the Cold War after 1945, and the Korean War. Audiovisual aids and supplementary reading materials are suggested for the purposes. Discussion questions to encourage inquiry, a vocabulary list, and a test are also included. SO 001 492 through SO 001 494 are related units. (Author/SBE)
