Political Science & Government: Eclectic Homeschool Online Social Studies Topic


A Civics Scavenger Hunt
Online scavenger hunts have become a fun way of getting kids to learn more about a topic on the Internet. Tony, our social studies editor helps you create your own online/offline scavenger hunt that will get your kids involved in civics on a personal level.

Effective Decision Making
Election time is a great time to remind people that citizenship is a day-to-day responsibility. Itís also a great time to recognize that itís never too late to make yourself aware of the political, social, and economic climate around you. A brief study of decision-making can be a fun way to help your child better understand what an effective citizen does besides vote at election time. The same principles can be used in other areas of life. This is true of all of the principles of leadership Ė theyíre really life skills for effective people.

Joseph Goebbels to Michael Moore -- Propaganda in the Media Age
What is propaganda? How do we help our children recognize propaganda? Tony looks at how propaganda developed in the twentieth cnetury and how it's being used today. He then gives some suggested resources for teaching our children to think critically about all information that is presented to them.

Red State, Blue State
As the 2004 election cycle ground to a close, there was considerable talk of the "red state, blue state" phenomenon. You probably saw some of the maps generated to represent this phenomenon. Tony takes a closer look at how to interpret these maps and how to dig deeper into demographics to learn how to draw useful conclusions.

What's All This Noise?
Media bias has been "in the news" for some time now. Tony takes a look at what bias means, how we can learn to recognize it, and how content analysis is used to help weed out bias. Whether you find yourself on the right, left, or somewhere in the middle of the political spectrum, this article will give you the tools to help your children learn to be critical thinkers when it comes to understanding the daily news.

What's All This Noise? Part II
Propaganda as we experience it today is much subtler than the hammer-in-your-face political porridge offered up over the years. Propaganda has often been a tool of warfare that dates back to biblical times.
