Summary

This curriculum guide for secondary grades encourages new young voters to understand and participate in the political system. A major objective is to help students consider the political system as an agent of change, and, moreover, to help them understand how individuals control, influence, and change government. Students learn that there are many ways to change laws and that one of the most effective ways is through the ballot. Focus is upon exercising voting responsibility. Teaching techniques attempt to involve students in discussion and participation through activity suggestions. Three major sections comprise the three week mini-course which, being suggestive rather than prescriptive, can be adapted to a longer or shorter period of time. I. "Why Government?" offers concepts, challenges, and purposes of government. II. "How to effect change in government" analyzes needs and methods for changing laws. III. "How do I become involved?" examines reasons for and insights into political parties and offers specific instructions to young people on how to register and vote. (SJM)
