Smith, Melinda R., Ed.; And Others (1983). Law in U.S. History: A Teacher Resource Manual. Revised. Designed for integration into secondary U.S. history courses, the activities provide a format for the examination of law-related themes and issues. Themes explored include the conflict between individual and societal needs, the relationship of the individual to state and federal authority, individual rights, the shifting balance of power among the three branches of government, the influence of social and economic conditions on judicial decision making, and the U.S. constitution as an instrument of governance. The document is organized into four sections roughly corresponding to the chronological periods in most U.S. history courses: Colonial Period through Revolution, Growth of a New Nation, Civil War through Industrialization, and The Modern Era. Activities, which require critical thinking, reasoning, problem solving, and inquiry skills, include opinion polls/surveys, role plays, simulations, case studies, mock trials, appellate court simulations, adversary models, and learning stations. Many of the activities focus on landmark Supreme Court cases and modern cases to elucidate the meaning and judicial interpretation of the guarantees of the Bill of Rights. Topics include the Salem witch trials, lawful inspection, the Alien and Sedition Acts, the Dred Scott case, Plessy v. Ferguson, the impeachment of Andrew Johnson, the McCarthy era, and Watergate. Each activity includes an introduction, objectives, recommended grade level, time and materials needed, instructions, and masters for student handouts.   [More]  Descriptors: Civil War (United States), Colonial History (United States), Constitutional Law, Industrialization

Hosford, Philip L., Ed. (1978). Minority Women in Research in Education. A Report of the Dallas Conference on Expanding the Role of Minority Women in Educational Research (Dallas, Texas, November 9-11, 1977). Reporting on the 1977 Dallas Conference where 14 women representing 6 ethinc backgrounds explored the possibilities of expanding the role of minority women in educational research, this document includes 5 major sections (with individual summaries and recommendations), a bibliography, and an appendix. Major sections of this document present the following: defining the problem of women in research and development (previous conferences and reports are discussed, particularly the National Institute of Education reports and conferences); preparing for the conference (pre-conference study materials and beliefs are assessed as is the division of participants into 3 groups to consider questions related to K-12 educational activities, higher education, and a community based research career ladder); training minority women currently in education (needed skills are identified as communication, interpersonal, research design, quantitative, and project management skills; target audiences are identified as local education agencies, state education agencies, universities, regional laboratories, professional associations, and funding sources); expanding the role of minority women at universities (programs which universities can implement immediately are defined); training minority women via a career ladder approach (a model is presented which involves increasingly complex research skills and formal education and provides for research aides/technicians, research colleagues and interns, research adjuncts, and professional researchers).   [More]  Descriptors: Agency Role, Career Ladders, Conference Reports, Conferences

Chu, Lily (1980). Education for Rural Women: A Global Perspective. Rural women come from many ethnicities, enjoy diverse social economic statuses, different family circumstances, and various levels of educational attainment. Of the 34-35 million rural women, a large percentage are plagued by poverty and lack of opportunity for education, employment, health care, and various social services. Rural people, who constitute one third of this country's people, also make up half of the nation's impoverished. While a greater number of rural women are now employed outside the family, they tend to be employed in low-paying clerical, service, and seasonal positions. For women who are ethnic minorities, aged, single head of households, or displaced housewives, the isolation of rural life adds an additional burden. This paper recognizes the urgent educational needs of rural women; summarizes research and statistical findings on rural women in the areas of education, income, employment, and values orientation; points out some cultural conflicts and dilemmas that may occur as a result of short-sighted, fragmented, and hastily implemented educational programs; presents a global perspective of the education of rural women which calls for social and policy changes and is multidimensional, grassroots based, and oriented to the culture and people of rural America; and delineates the needs for research, for regional rural centers, and for federal support in rural women's education.   [More]  Descriptors: Academic Achievement, Access to Education, Career Development, Culture Conflict
