Summary

"Practical Political Action", intended for secondary grade students and adapted directly from the nonpartisan "Action Course in Practical Politics" prepared and published by the Chamber of Commerce of the United States, is designed to assist students in understanding and participating in the political life of our nation by examining action at the grass-roots level. Emphasis is upon familiarizing students with the many ways they can actively participate in support of candidates before they reach the voting age. Six chapters are presented containing case studies and discussion questions. Political parties are examined, defined, and compared. Precinct organization and the role of the precinct leader are described. The purposes, organization, committee functions, and financing of political activity during the campaign period are analyzed. Origins, functions, and types of political clubs are examined, noting that such participation is especially suitable for beginners. Problems that confront political leaders are identified. Types of political meetings and methods of planning and conducting them successfully are discussed. (SJM)
