Summary

The student text portion of this set contains an account of the 1968 presidential election, from the state primaries to the election of Richard M. Nixon. The Teacher's Guide outlines objectives, teaching strategies, discussion questions, vocabulary, and an annotated listing of resources which includes educational and commercial films as well as books. Teaching strategies suggested include a wide variety of learning activities, from precinct and campaign work to research projects. Among the cognitive objectives listed are understandings of: successful campaign techniques; the qualities of a successful politician; the role played by issues in an election; the role of party conventions; and, the role of bargaining among politicians, and "appreciation of the orderly and peaceful manner in which power changes hands in a democratic society." Psychomotor objectives are: participation as worker in a political campaign; increased reading about politics in newspapers and magazines; and, increased participation in school politics. It is strongly suggested that this, and any other unit on politics, be coordinated with some form of local or national election so that students will be able to participate directly in the political process.
